Internet Safety

My Rules for Online Safety

  • I will not give out personal information such as my address, telephone number, parent's work address/telephone number, or the name and location of my school without my parent's permission.

  • I will tell my parents right away if I come across any information that makes me feel uncomfortable.

  • I will never agree to get together with someone I "meet" online without first checking with my parents.  If my parents agree to the meeting, I will be sure that it is in a public place and bring my mother or father along.

  • I will never send a person my picture or anything else without first checking with my parents.

  • I will not respond to any messages that are mean or in any way make me feel uncomfortable.  It is not my fault if I get a message like that.  If I do I will tell my parents right away so that they can contact the online service.

  • I will talk to my parents so that we can set up rules for going online.  We will decide upon the time of day that I can be online, the length of time I can be online, and appropriate areas for me to visit.  I will not access other areas or break these rules without their permission
