    Kids' Rules for Safety on the Internet

    Students of all ages are enjoying the Internet, so it is crucial that parents and guardians be aware of the risks their children will face. The following suggestions are my recommendations for safety online. For more online safety information, for activities for practicing online safety with your child, and for contracts and guidelines please visit SafeKids.com. You may also request SafeKids information by calling 1-800-843-5678.


    Evergreen Elementary School Media Center would like everyone to remember:

    1. Information online is not private. Never tell anyone online your last name, your phone number, where you live, or where you go to school.
    2. Never e-mail a picture of yourself to a stranger.
    3. If you see something that makes you uncomfortable, don't look around or explore; get your parents or teacher instead.
    4. Never make plans to meet Internet friends.
    5. Never open an e-mail, file, or Web page from people you don't know.
    6. Never give out your password, except to responsible adults in your family or a teacher.
    7. Never visit sites that offer special prizes, contests, or games. These sites may be trying to get your personal information or get money from you.
    8. Always follow family and school rules for the Internet. Rules are there to make sure you stay safe.
