Help your kids learn to be safe online

Visit the following links with your children to learn more about being safe

on the internet and with social media.

To ensure safety online, it is recommended you put either K9 or Norton Online Family on your computers, and also use OpenDNS on your router. These three internet protection sites are excellent and they are all FREE If you need more information about how each of these tools work and which one would be best for your family, please go through the slides for the Internet Safety presentation. They cover each of these tools in great detail and explain what each tool can do and how it can be used.   This combination seems to work best in keeping the family safe. However, no internet filter is a substitute for taking time to talk to your children regularly and for teaching them how to protect themselves on the internet.

National Blue Ribbon Schools serve as models for other schools throughout the nation, and school personnel are often sought out as mentors.

Electronic Device Policy - 2017

Wasatch Elementary, along with the Provo City School District Board of Education recognizes that electronic and interfering devices are both distracting and disruptive  to the learning environment, and have the potential to be used to intimidate and/or threaten others.  Therefore, such devices are not to be seen or heard in class unless the teacher's activity specifically requires their use.

If a cell phone or electronic device is brought to school, it is to be turned on vibrate or off and remain in the student's backpack during the school day (including lunch and recess).  If this policy is violated, school administration will take appropriate disciplinary action.

Interfering devices - This is any device that interferes with the educational process.  This could include, but is not limited to, cameras, cell phones, camera telephones, gameboys, tablets, ipods, lasers, laser pens or pointers, or other electronic equipment or disruptive objects.
