In their world, being able to connect and communicate 24/7 from just about any location is normal – and expected! Between kindergarten and fifth grade, kids go through rapid growth in learning about many topics, including digital media technologies. From playing games on their mom or dad's cell phone, to learning how to point and click a mouse, to navigating online by themselves, kids this age are participating in a connected culture.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p><strong>W</strong><strong>h</strong><strong>y</strong><strong> </strong><strong>Do</strong><strong>e</strong><strong>s</strong><strong> </strong><strong>I</strong><strong>t</strong><strong> </strong><strong>M</strong><strong>a</strong><strong>t</strong><strong>t</strong><strong>e</strong><strong>r?</strong></p><p> </p><p>Young children need to learn early how to make good choices so they can take advantage of the powerful technologies available to them. And to make these good choices, kids need parental guidance.</p><p> </p><img alt="" style="width:326px;margin:5px;" /><p>The stakes are high because our kids' technological abilities can be greater than their maturity and judgment. Having unrestricted access to information and people can result in gaining a wealth of information and experiences. But it can also mean accessing inappropriate content and making inappropriate contact with others. The difference between a great experience and an iffy one lies in the decisions kids make. Just as kids learn to eat properly, swim safely, or drive a car carefully, they need to know how to live in the digital world responsibly and respectfully. Their ultimate success depends on their abilities to use digital media to create, collaborate, and communicate well with others. Those who master these skills in using digital tools will benefit from the digital world's awesome power.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p><strong>co</strong><strong>m</strong><strong>mo</strong><strong>n</strong><strong> </strong><strong>se</strong><strong>n</strong><strong>s</strong><strong>e</strong><strong> </strong><strong>s</strong><strong>a</strong><strong>y</strong><strong>s</strong></p><p> </p><p><strong>Us</strong><strong>e </strong><strong> </strong><strong>bookmark</strong><strong>s</strong><strong> </strong><strong>an</strong><strong>d</strong><strong> </strong><strong>saf</strong><strong>e</strong><strong> </strong><strong>search</strong><strong>.</strong><strong> </strong>Teach your child to bookmark his or her favorite sites.

We want them to explore, enjoy, communicate, and create. We also want to be sure they are protected. If our kids are going to thrive with digital media, we must balance the negative with the positive, privacy with protection. As our children grow, they need more independence and privacy.

And we don't help our kids when we judge their lives through the lens of a non-digital world. It's important for us to understand that our kids will spend much of their lives in a connected world, where everyone creates and communicates.

Review sessions and resources are currently being developed and will be shared with students, and published on the website later this Fall.</p><p><u>Extending Four Early Release Days:<br></u>The 2017-2018 instructional calendar included six "early release" days that are typically designated for professional development, teacher preparation, and parent conferences. Four of the previously designated early release days (Oct. 9, 20, Feb 16, April 13) will be extended to full instructional days.  This is designed to allow students more time in the classroom, as well as to serve the needs of so many of our families who are displaced by Harvey and depending, now more than ever, on the daily routine of school to bring a sense of normalcy to their child(ren)'s lives.  We understand that October 9 and 20 had been set aside for parent/teacher conferences at many campuses.  However, in lieu of the in-person conferences, parents are encouraged to communicate with teachers by email and/or phone.  Parents should also continue to monitor their student's progress on the <a href="/pages/home-access-center.aspx">Home Access Center</a>.  Friday, December 15 and Thursday, May 24 will remain "early release" days since final exams are given on those dates.</p><p>Thank you for your understanding as we move forward with these post-Harvey initiatives to recapture lost instructional time and to provide additional support to our students and families. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your school. </p></div>
