SafeStudents Online is pleased to announce that Fontbonne Hall Academy, a college preparatory school for young women, located in Brooklyn, New York, has selected SafeStudents Online to help parents keep their children safe from some of the threats commonly found on social media.
Starting in fall 2017, Fontbonne Hall will purchase the SafeStudents Online program on behalf of all parents of incoming 9th grade students. Parents will be able to monitor their childrenâ€™s social media activity for inappropriate or potentially dangerous posts and will receive alerts to help them take action when necessary.
SafeStudents Online balances protection with privacy to encourage collaboration and communication between parents and children. The advanced technology helps parents keep their children safe from online threats such as cyberbullying, online predators, and damaged reputations. Parents never need to ask for their childrenâ€™s passwords, and the online activity is monitored privately by parents, with the school having no access to the content.
Detailed information about the program will be shared with parents later this summer, and instructions and help will be provided at our Back to School meeting in September.
â€śFontbonne Hall Academy is proud to partner with SafeStudents Online and take a proactive step towards helping our students make correct choices when using social media. As our students transition into the social dimension of their high school years, this program will be a great way for parents to engage in productive conversations with their daughters about the benefits and the challenges of most social media platforms. We are so happy to be able to provide this very valuable service to our 9th grade families.â€ť
