Upcoming Tech Awareness Day 12/3

Mr. Shea shares the district’s plans for an unplugged Tech Awareness day for this Friday, December 3rd and Wellness Weekend December 4th and 5th. Our Tech Awareness Day is an effort to help students, families and staff to unplug and have good discussions about the use of technology in our day-to-day lives. Here are a few great topics to discuss with your child:

  • Internet Safety and Privacy
  • Screen Time (and maybe use an app to track screen time)
  • Digital Citizenship and Anti Bullying
  • Internet Validity and Fake News

All are great topics and you can find resources to help with these discussions at our parent help site at vtsd.com/tech

And to read more about our Wellness Weekend, check out Ms. D’Avino’s parent letter!
