Message for Parents/Guardians:

Coast Mountains School District 82 has been working with Safer Schools Together (SST) for the past 3 years in conjunction with the Ministry of Education.  SST has a proven record of helping schools throughout North America minimize and manage their risks of student violence with reliable, professional training.  SST is the first company chosen to deliver provincial Violence Threat Assessment & Preventing Bullying Training to schools and communities in Canada.

On June 29, 2020, parents/guardians are invited to attend an SST “Remote Parent Learning Session” providing valuable resources regarding online safety.  The Safer Schools Together Parent Presentation entitled “Raising Responsible Digital Learners in the Age of COVID-19” will focus on increasing your understanding and awareness of safety in the remote learning world.  Being social is such an important part of your child’s growth and that has become much more difficult with physical distancing in effect.

This remote learning session will better equip you for your digital parenting strategy, and give you a snapshot of current video conferencing platforms, trends and concerning apps.

At this age, your child will encounter situations that will challenge their independence, including cyberbullying (and more commonly – cyber exclusion), the dangers of anonymity, privacy, sharing intimate images, and inappropriate websites. You need to be there to provide support and guidance during this critical period.

This session is being offered twice on June 29.  Reserve your spot today!


3pm – 5pm PST  (click on link to register for this session)
6pm – 8pm PST

SST looks forward to having you join us and encourage you to share this opportunity!  If you have any questions, or difficulties registering, call us toll-free at 1 (855) 677-3720 or email info@saferschoolstogether.com and we will be happy to assist you.
