Internet Safety and Digital Citizenship

Being SMART on the internet!

Cyberpals are strangers. Never meet a cyberpal face-to-face without taking a responsible adult with you. Never give out your personal identity information unless a responsible adult says you can.

Be a good cyber citizen. Understand your school’s Acceptable Use Policy. Copying information from a Web site and pretending it’s yours, is plagiarism. Downloading or sharing copyright protected software without the owners’ permission is stealing.

Learn to recognize online advertisements. Protect yourself, your family and friends by not giving any private identity information to any Web site without first asking permission of a responsible adult.

Smart searching includes trying more than one search site and more than one keyword. Find out how to identify high-quality Web sites. Ask your teacher or librarian to help you find the best information on the Web or in books.

Cyberspace connects real people and information around the world. Remember to keep your passwords private. Ask your family to use a firewall and anti-virus software to protect your computer and files.

I-Safe education helps the students learn to display good character on the internet just as we would in our own real communities. Below are some helpful links for Parent and student education.

More than two decades of research findings are unequivocal: the most important aspect of a school in terms of student learning is teacher quality, and our teachers are among the best!

Students in K-2 have access to a reading specialist. 3rd-5th grade students participate in our Innovation Labs where they create and explore. K-5 students participate in music classes, and 4th-8th grade students have access to instrument instruction. Spanish instruction begins in 4th grade, and Mandarin is offered in our middle school. All of our schools have a dedicated counselor, teacher librarian, physical educator, and more!

Through the generosity of donors, the Hillsborough Schools Foundation pledged $3.5 million to our schools for this school year. Last year's Fund-A-Need raised funds for traffic and safety. Thank you!
