We want to provide parents and guardians with important information and updates about how social media networks are used, and students with the tools and resources to stay safe online. Additionally, in response to the rise in school shootings, a new component of the ‘Stay Safe' event will focus on school safety and mental health. It is sure to be an informative day and we encourage residents to join the conversation.”
