Students Stay Cyber Safe

In an effort to promote Internet safety and address the topic of cyberbullying, students at Park Avenue Memorial Elementary School participated in an interactive assembly titled “NetSmartz” led by Deputy Sheriff Jacob Gross from the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department.
During the presentation, students heard an age-appropriate message about ways to be safe on the Internet and the importance of treating others with respect. Students watched an educational video that identified four rules of online safety: tell a trusted adult if you see something that makes you uncomfortable, do not share personal information, do not meet up with people from the internet and use good “netiquette.”
Students were afforded time at the end of the assembly to ask questions about information discussed during the presentation.
