Social Media Presentation for Parents

Middle School parents from both Sunrise and Horizon are invited to attend a social media presentation at Kearney High School on Tuesday, February 13, 2018, 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in the Kearney High Concert Hall & Theatre. Parents should park on the east side of the school and enter the building by the Big K. Please note that Kearney High School has Parent/Teacher Conferences on this evening, so the building will be busy with a variety of activities.

The social media and digital citizenship presentation will be given by Karen Haase. Karen practices exclusively in the area of education law, and currently, her firm represents over 150 public school districts and other educational institutions. Ms. Haase frequently presents in-service to students and staff and speaks to all manner of education groups. During this presentation, Ms. Haase will discuss cyberbullying, sexting, and internet safety with students and parents. Karen uses humor, statistics, summaries of real-life cases, and discusses criminal consequences attached to the inappropriate use of social media. She also presents frightening results that students who ignore internet safety have faced.

Please join us for this important event so you can partner with your school to model appropriate social media use for our kids.
