Also, we have installed Windows Live Family Safety. This extends the parents ability to monitor their students. This is a free program offered by Microsoft but you need to signup using a free Microsoft email. More information can be found on our website at www.centralcubs.com and look for “Protecting your kids with Family Safety”
Click “Ok” on the next screen, and you can close any open windows.
These are some basic Parental Controls, but the best way to monitor what your student is doing is to have them use the netbook in high traffic areas in your home, so they can be monitored.
Invite your students that are outside to come back into the room to learn about Online Safety.
The student planner this year is located on our website and on every students netbook. Please look it over and familiarize yourself with our school rules and procedures.
