1. Keep Your Online Identity Secret
Don’t tell anyone your real name and address or what neighborhood you live in. Here’s the general rule: Don’t give out any information that a predator could possibly use to find you. The Federal Trade Commission says that even “small clues” like what school you attend or the name of your athletic team is enough for a predator to figure out your identity.
2. Your Username and Password Belong to You … And Only You
Don’t give your username or password to anyone. It's just that simple. What if a friend logs on and pretends to be you, and then says something really awful and gets you in trouble? Sure, it might seem funny to the “former” friend, but it’s serious and it happens every day. With your username and password, someone can post language that gets you expelled from school, in trouble with your parents, or even in trouble with the law. Keep your name and password private.
3. Other Tips
Only accept friend requests from people you KNOW.
Make sure your privacy settings on Facebook are set to private.
If you post photos, make sure that they are only visible to your friends and are not public (you can change this in settings).
If you get any unwelcome or suspicious messages on Facebook, report the messages to Facebook and block the person from contacting you.
New Recycling Program
Students: Thanks to Student Council providing the funds, recycling has returned to Sumner! Please look for the container in each classroom and put into it only recyclable materials. Trash like glass bottles, tissues, and styrofoam goes into the trash can. Please help us reduce what we send to the landfill by refilling water bottles, reusing paper, and generally reducing our consumption of one-use products like plastic forks and spoons. if you are interested in helping to empty classroom bins, contact senior Amanda Cano-Lozano.
