Dear Parents and Guardians:
Please click on the video link below to view the "Principal's Corner" to hear a message from Dr. Marchino, Casey Carlquist and two of our 8th grade students.
News from our Technology Department:
Parents: This is an app available to iOS devices (iPhone, iPad and iPod) via iTunes. Kids are using the app "After School" nation wide and the reviews are not very positive. It seems this app is being used as a platform for anonymous bullying, sharing of sexual content, nudity, alcohol - tobacco- and drug use, and other inappropriate and explicit content among students. Also there are a few other inappropriate apps! Decoy apps may look like a common calculator, camera, a music app, a photo editing app or even a game apps.
If you are regularly monitoring your child’s devices—which includes tablets phones and laptops—then you will notice new apps and icons quickly. But, if it’s been a while since you took a look at your child’s phone, you’ve got some catching up to do since some of the “apps” may not be what their artwork icon appears to be.
For instance, the Secret Calculator decoy app allows users to hide secret photos, videos, documents and PDF files behind a working calculator. What an outsider sees is an ordinary calculator, but when a user enters his or her password, they can access secret files.Please be aware of the app, check into it, keep your kids safe and teach them about the dangers of social media and using it responsibly.
