This is the first event in a Family First Lecture Series designed to bring experts in their fields to parents to discuss relevant topics that affect today’s families. The lectures are open to the public. This first program in the series will feature experts from the FBI and Megahertz Computer. Supervisory Special Agent Russ Brown, a cybercrime expert, will discuss online safety for you and your child and help you answer such questions as: Should you post your child’s picture to Facebook? What personal information should you keep private? Is it OK to share your location information?
Joining in the discussion will be computer consultant Robert Bertoni of Megahertz Computer in Bradford. He will discuss how to configure your computer to protect your vital information, including setting up fire walls and parental controls. This lecture is geared toward parents and children in grades five and up. If you are interested in attending, please let the school know by visiting its Facebook page. More information is available from Dawn DiPersio at 978-729-6453. Visit the school online at sjshav.com.
