Cyberbullying Awareness

Parents and students at Finley Middle School learned about the dangers of cyberbullying during a presentation hosted by the school’s guidance department on Oct. 16.

The “Cyber Bullying Awareness” presentation was given by Laura Campbell, a representative from the Long Island Crisis Center. Campbell provided those in attendance with relevant information on cyberbullying and the services offered through the Long Island Crisis Center.

Finley administrators have invited Campbell to return to the school in January to speak with physical education classes about the consequences of negative social networking behavior, how to keep themselves safe, and what their legal rights are in cyberspace.

The parent meeting and student workshops are part of Finley’s continued efforts to raise awareness to the dangers posed by students having unsupervised access to social media.
