Internet and Cell Phone Safety: What you should know
October 29th at 6:30pm
Newmarket Jr./Sr. High School Cafeteria
Do you and/or your children use a cell phone or the internet? Are you on Facebook, use apps, access banking information online? Do you have children in grades 5-12? This information night is for you and your family!
The internet offers a dizzying array of opportunities for fun, learning & adventure but also has a darker side that people are blindly feeding every time they log onto a social networking site. Investigator Jennifer Frank will educate the community about cyberstalking, cyberbullying, "sexting" and other cell phone misuses. Ms. Frank will explain how posting on line can be dangerous to your physical safety, your property and your ability to get a good job or a college scholarship. She will provide tips to keep your personal information and your children safe as well as help them determine the best ways to use the Internet and avoid trouble.
Please join us for this FREE program. This program is open to the public. Babysitting will be available.
This Parent Night is supported by the NJSHS Wellness Program, Officer Stevens (Newmarket Police Department) and is Funded by Newmarket Community Education Partnership (NCEP).
