SafeStudents Online is excited to announce that Westchester Country Day School, a college preparatory school serving students in grades PK-12 in High Point, North Carolina, has selected SafeStudents Online to help its parents keep their children safe from some of the threats commonly found on social media.
Starting in January 2018, Westchester will purchase the SafeStudents Online program on behalf of Middle and Upper School families. Parents will be able to monitor their children’s social media activity for inappropriate or potentially dangerous messages, photos, and videos, 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 children’s passwords, and the online activity is monitored privately by parents, with the school having no access to the content.
“We often hear from parents asking about best practices for monitoring their student’s social media presences. Our partnership with SafeStudents Online gives parents a proactive way to keep up with the rapidly changing digital age, and we hope that our parents will take advantage of this opportunity.”
– Mr. Cobb Atkinson, Head of School
