Save The Date - Parent Internet Safety Night April 6th

We are offering an informational parent presentation regarding Internet safety for parents of students at Dana and Correia.  The Internet is an amazing place where kids spend a lot of time socializing and exploring.  Unfortunately, there are risks involved when having access to so many digital platforms and cyber communities.  It's really important for parents to stay informed about child cyber safety.  The San Diego Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force (SD-ICAC) and the San Diego Police Foundation are providing tools to help families manage their online lives.  Learn about cyberbullying, social networking, gaming, sexting, and online predators.  Parents and guardians are invited to attend this important community event on April 6, 2023 from 5:30-6:30PM.  The presentation will be on Zoom and the link will be shared closer to the date.
