Social Media Safety

Katie Schumacher, a former graduate of Mineola High School, donated her time to present her “Don’t Press Send” campaign at Mineola Middle School. In two presentations, she spoke with fifth- through seventh-graders regarding the importance of making smart choices while using social media. During the program, she emphasized the dangers and legality of student choices on such platforms as Facebook, Snapchat, InstaGram and Twitter, and explained in detail how the Dignity for All Students Act protects them from harmful online behavior.
