RKYHS Students Learn to be Smart Digital Citizens

As part of the ongoing effort to teach students about being responsible in the fast-paced, digital world, RKYHS students participated in an interactive program about teenagers and technology. Students had the opportunity to hear from Detective Edward DeLafuente, from the Millburn Police Department. Drawing on his experience in law enforcement, Detective DeLafuente highlighted the importance of safe and appropriate digital communication. He spoke about the use of different online apps, 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 the 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. JKHA/RKYHS were fortunate to welcome Detective Delafuente back to school where he recently presented to parents on ways that they can ensure that their children are using technology in a safe and healthy manner.
