Parents and Caregivers,
On Tuesday, March 22nd, Lisa Ringel from the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force will speak to our 4th and 5th grade students about how to stay safe online.
She has also prepared a presentation that can be beneficial for parents with children of all ages which she will give Monday 3/21 at 9:00 AM by Zoom. The goal is to provide you with information regarding current online trends, and to educate about potential risks and safety measures available for families. Last year in San Diego ICAC investigated over 8,000 crimes against children online, the worst year yet.
