Scams, Predators & Creeps

Our students need to build awareness for how to protect themselves from bad actors online who might take advantage of them. This could include using their information or images in scams for financial gain or even for sexploitation.

 

  • Younger children – If an adult asks for your contact information without including your parents or using official school/team communication tools
  • Middle School – If you hear about or see a compromising photo of someone you know, what can you do to mitigate the harm?
  • High school – if someone you know or someone you don’t know asks you for a private photo, how can you respond?
