    Hello Parents/Guardians!
    Chances are your students already use social media. It is important for both parents and teachers to understand the potential issues and safety concerns that come along with it. That’s why Pearl River School District is proud to announce our new partnership with SmartSocial.com.

    We want to help keep your family safe online and on social media. To keep your kids safe, we have partnered with SmartSocial.com, the leaders in online training videos and resources to help parents navigate the negative (and positive) parts of social media for their kids.

    • Tips for talking to kids about technology and setting smartphone guidelines
    • Popular apps for students (including step-by-step instructions to turn on safety settings)
    • How students can use social media to shine online (they’ll learn to create a positive digital footprint to help them get into college or land future jobs)
    These short video courses appeal to both technology experts and parents who aren’t as tech savvy. Our school’s membership gives each family access to the Smart Social courses for free until June 30, 2020.
