JKHA Students Learn to Be Smart Digital Citizens

As part of the middle school’s ongoing effort to teach students about being responsible in the fast-paced, digital world, the JKHA fifth-eighth graders participated in an interactive program about teenagers and technology with Detective Edward DeLafuente, a local police detective. DeLafuente highlighted the importance of safe and appropriate digital communication, emphasized the importance of ensuring proper privacy settings on all digital communication and talked about the challenges inherent in the anonymity of the internet. He encouraged students to consider the permanency of the internet when they post things online and gave them suggestions of how to make good decisions about what to post. Students then joined the guidance department and Detective Delafuente during lunch for a smaller Q&A session.
