St. Joseph Tips

During Cybersecurity Awareness Month and Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week – November 15-21, 2020 – students and school staff are continuing to learn more about bullying and its effect on student learning and well-being.

As Digital Citizens, users recognize the rights, responsibilities and opportunities of living, learning and working in an interconnected digital world, in which they act in ways that are safe, legal and ethical.  Students are required to demonstrate digital citizenship through the appropriate use of technology as outlined in our code of conduct. 

Whether in school or virtually, students are expected to:

  • Treat other students and school staff with dignity and respect.
  • Represent only themselves online. Students should never pretend to be someone else or allow someone else to pretend to be them.
  • Complete all work assigned to the best of their ability while adhering to rules around plagiarism.
  • Always protect their password(s) and schoolwork so others cannot take advantage.
  • Use appropriate and encouraging language when posting opinions, critiquing others and chatting on school platforms.
