Limiting a Child’s Social Media Exposure

While keeping in touch with friends on social media sites is fun, giving out too much information can lead to many problems.

 These tips from the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority (KHEAA) may help your child limit exposure.

 Unscrupulous people may try to use their posted information to commit crimes. To help protect your child and his/her personal information, follow these tips:

 ·         Make contact information private. Never post a phone number, address or e-mail address. Scammers can piece together an identity from this information.

 ·         Do not list exact date and place of birth. That information is gold to identity thieves. Do not answer these questions in online quizzes. Also, do not answer questions about the name of your street, where you were born, your mother’s maiden name or your favorite travel spot. That information can be used to determine your password and answers to your security questions.

 ·         Limit who can search for your child’s profile on Internet search engines.

 ·         Do not announce upcoming vacations on social media sites. That is an invitation to a burglar.

Attendance Incentive

Starting the month of October, at Millard School, a new attendance incentive is being implemented. Each week, every student who is present at school with no tardies (morning or evening), no absences, and no EHOs will have their name put in for a monthly prize drawing. A student who has been present at school every day, all day for the entire school month will have their name put in an extra time. This means a student could have their name put in for the prize drawing five times!
