‘Parent University’ class will focus on online safety

WICOMICO CO., Md. – On Wednesday, Wicomico Public Schools will be teaching parents how to keep their kids safe on the internet.

It’s all part of the school district’s parent university program.

An expert in cyber security will be giving parents who attend specific tools that they can use online to protect their kids as well as tips for how they can monitor their child’s presence online.

The presenter will also touch on the importance of good communication with children.

The ultimate goal of the class is to make sure our kids are making good decisions online.

Beth Sheller, a Family Engagement Specialist with Wicomico Public Schools said, “We want to make sure that what they’re doing is safe, you know? And that they’re making good informed decisions about things they’re posting, people that they’re talking to, and making good choices.”

The class will be taking place at Pemberton Elementary School from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday.

You can register by calling the Wicomico Board of Education at 410-677-4453.

Care for children ages four and up will be available at the event.
