5. Digital Citizenship and Well-Being

It is essential that we take an active role in educating our students and partner with parents about responsible digital citizenship. This affects our students’ safety and well-being in an age of smartphones and social media.

Here is a letter with more information.

Here are some key points to discuss with your children.

  • Respect for Others: Emphasize the importance of treating others with respect and empathy. Encourage them to consider how recording a fight can be hurtful and humiliating for those involved.

  • Legal Consequences: Make them aware of the potential legal consequences of recording fights or other personally identifiable information that may be viewed as being an accessory to violence or invasion of privacy.

  • Impact on Mental Health: Explain how sharing and watching violent content can negatively impact their mental health and desensitize them to violence.

  • Digital Responsibility: Teach them about responsible smartphone and social media usage, including reporting violent content rather than sharing it.

  • Being an Upstander: Encourage your child to be an upstander rather than a bystander. If they witness a fight or harassment, they should seek help from an authority figure rather than recording it.

  • Peer Pressure: Discuss the dangers of succumbing to peer pressure or the desire for social media attention. Help them understand that their worth is not determined by likes, shares, or comments on a video.

  • Empathy and Kindness: Promote empathy and kindness in their interactions both online and offline. Remind them of the Golden Rule: Treat others as you would like to be treated.

6. Culture Climate Survey

    Thursday, Oct. 5th students will take the ASD Culture, Climate, and Connection Survey for the 2023-2024 school year in their Jet Time. The purpose of the survey is to help adults improve the learning environment in order for all students to thrive academically, socially, and emotionally. Please see last week’s email for more details.

Digital Citizenship Parent Letter

By Principle Johnson Communications

Dear Parents,

I wanted to take a moment to discuss an important topic that affects our children’s safety and well-being, especially in the age of smartphones and social media. It is crucial that we engage in open conversations with our children about the importance of never recording fights and avoiding the mob mentality that can accompany such situations.

In today’s digital age, the prevalence of smartphones and social media platforms has made it easier than ever for our children to capture and share moments from their daily lives. While these tools can be powerful for connecting and communicating, they can also pose significant risks when misused.

Here are some key points to discuss with your children:

  • Respect for Others: Emphasize the importance of treating others with respect and empathy. Encourage them to consider how recording a fight can be hurtful and humiliating for those involved.
  • Legal Consequences: Make them aware of the potential legal consequences of recording fights or other personal identifiable information may be viewed as being an accessory to violence or invasion of privacy.
  • Impact on Mental Health: Explain how sharing and watching violent content can negatively impact their mental health and desensitize them to violence.
  • Digital Responsibility: Teach them about responsible smartphone and social media usage, including reporting violent content rather than sharing it.
  • Being an Upstander: Encourage your child to be an upstander rather than a bystander. If they witness a fight or harassment, they should seek help from an authority figure rather than recording it.
  • Peer Pressure: Discuss the dangers of succumbing to peer pressure or the desire for social media attention. Help them understand that their worth is not determined by likes, shares, or comments on a video.
  • Empathy and Kindness: Promote empathy and kindness in their interactions both online and offline. Remind them of the Golden Rule: Treat others as you would like to be treated.

It is essential that we partner together and take an active role in educating our children about responsible digital citizenship. By having these conversations and setting a positive example through our own behavior, we can help them make informed, compassionate, and responsible choices in the digital world.

Thank you for your attention to this important matter. Let’s work together to ensure the safety and well-being of our children and promote a culture of empathy, respect, and responsibility.

Sincerely,

Principal Courtney

It has come to my attention that there are a few concerns with the safety of 5 Star app.  The district has vetted this app for the safety and security of student information.  Both parties agree to uphold their responsibilities under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (“FERPA”), the Protection of Pupil Rights Amendment (“PPRA”), and the Children’s Online Privacy and Protection Act (“COPPA”).  5 Starr considers Student Data to be confidential and does not use such data for any purpose other than to provide the services on the School’s behalf.

The SATURN is not approved and I do not want anyone to use it.  This is the statement I shared with our faculty and staff today.

SATURN APP Click the link to read more about a social media app that has become prevalent in our secondary schools this year.

As students participate and do well in their academics, they will receive points, which can be redeemed for prizes at the school store. Students are encouraged, but not required, to download the app via their smartphone. If they don’t have a smartphone, they can utilize the website login and earn points by entering a code provided by an event organizer. This new program will bring more students together and build a sense of community, culture, and academic achievement within Cedar Valley. Please view this video and visit our website for more information.

14. Freight Farm Grand Opening – Wednesday, August 23, @  6:00-8:00 pm

LOCATION: West side of the school.

Thanks to a major grant from Meta (formerly Facebook), students at Cedar Valley High School will have an outstanding, 21st Century hands-on learning opportunity to work with and study in a closed container, hydroponic garden experience called Freight Farm.

Vertical farming just may be the way of the future, and at Cedar Valley High School, thanks to a major grant from Meta, students will have hands-on learning experiences with vertical farming in a closed container specially designed for low-water, high-efficiency farming.

The container, purchased from and supported by Freight Farms, can produce between 2-5 tons of produce annually and only requires about five gallons of water per day. Students from business, agriculture, and science classes will benefit from having the container farm active on the school campus.

This Meta Freight Farm sustainability grant is part of over one million dollars in STEM and technology donations awarded to the local community over the past three years. Meta’s Eagle Mountain campus has been a part of the Eagle Mountain community since announcing its data center in 2018 and has taken an active role in promoting sustainability and supporting STEM education initiatives with the Alpine School District and the greater community.

The community is invited to come see the Freight Farm unit at Cedar Valley High School on Wednesday, August 23rd, for a ribbon-cutting ceremony and celebration from 6 to 8 p.m.
