Online Safety

Stay Safe Online

Follow these rules from McGruff

  • If you see a website, email, or anything that makes you feel uncomfortable, talk to your parents or an adult you trust about it right away.
  • Never give out personal information like your name, telephone number, address, email, or school name.
  • Never meet someone face-to-face that you know only from the Internet. Remember that the people you chat with online may not be who they say they are.
  • Don’t open emails from people you don’t know – the emails may be spam that could give your computer a virus.
  • Check with your parents before you buy anything online.
  • Ask your parents before you download music or movies – it’s illegal to download some of the things you find online.
