All Parents Invited to Internet Safety Conference

Dangers online are impacting youth and families locally and around the nation which is why Uintah School District is inviting all parents to a free internet safety seminar this Thursday night. According to student services director Shannon Deets, the district chose this topic for the seminar because it is a relevant issue that really needs addressed. “This is all about teaching parents how to keep their kids safe,” shares Deets. “Parents need to be involved in what their kids are doing and learn what they need to do to put safety restrictions on devices and what strategies to use in the home. We want to make sure that all kids are safe.” The speaker will be Cole Parkinson from NetSafe Utah and the seminar is open to all parents in the community whether the children attend school in the Uintah School District or not. The seminar begins at 7:00pm on Thursday, October 6th, at the Maeser Training Center, 1149 South 2500 West.
