Internet Safety Presentation:
Did you know you have a "digital fingerprint?" Sounds strange! But, anyone who utilizes the internet via social media sites, search engines, etc., or who sends text messages or digital photos has a "digital fingerprint!" This, and much more information, was discussed at the April 10 presentation sponsored by SDMS, in partnership with Five Star Technology and the Dearborn County Sheriff's Department. Those in attendance learned a LOT of truly valuable information!!

What is bullying? Bullying is repeated acts of harassment, including cyberbullying, distrimination, hazing, etc. There is help! Intervention by adults/bystanders is an important step in preventing escalation and resolving issues. Building level administration is trained, and provides training to others. If you think your child is being bullied, please notify the school. All individuals with knowledge of bullying should report such behavior to the building administration. SDMS respects the privacy of all parties and witnesses to complaints of bullying. The entire faculty and staff of SDMS have recently received more professional development relating to bullying. If you know of bullying, have questions, or need more information, please contact the school.
Happy Easter from the faculty, staff, and students of SDMS!!
