    Guidelines for Students

    • Online safety and responsible use guidelines for students include:

    • Be kind to others. Think how you would feel if someone posted similar things about you.

    • Think before you post. Material posted in these communities is public, could damage your reputation, or could be used to harm you. It is not private!

    • Take steps to protect yourself and others from bullying and harassment. Report concerns to the Web site and to a trusted adult.

    • Report to an adult if someone posts threats of violence or self-harm. Such threats could be real threats. Don't post threats yourself. Someone might take you seriously.

    • Develop "stranger danger" detection skills. People online might not be who they seem to be. Develop a safety plan for meeting online friends that is approved by your parent.

    • Stop the predators. If you have been contacted by someone you think might be a sexual predator, report it to a trusted adult.
