Rochester, N.Y. – The Rochester City School District celebrated International Safer Internet Day on Tuesday.
The district teamed up with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. Students learned the keys to being safe online, including cyberbullying awareness, online privacy and appropriate internet behavior.
“It’s all over, and it’s oftentimes, in the hours that students aren’t in school, with their phones and all the devices that they have, it can be at any time and any hour. So it’s important the lessons that are learned today stay with them not only this year, but through the years that they’re going to be online,” said Interim Superintendent Dan Lowengard.
The wrokshops also included lessons about being safe offline in an increasingly digital world.
