Digital Citizenship

This week in CLC, 3rd and 4th-grade students are taking part in an Internet Safety lesson on how to identify and cope with cyberbullying. Students will learn that cyberbullying is using the Internet or other electronic tools to harass, threaten, embarrass, or spread rumors about another person.

Students are taught to stop, block and tell if they are the target of a cyberbully.
Stop! Do not engage a cyberbully.
Block! If possible, block the cyberbully from your "buddies" list.
Tell! Tell a trusted adult if you are the target of a cyberbully.
