Protecting Our Children Online
We employ two programs to educate students, staff, parents and our community about internet safety. The Lassen Online Safety Training (LOST) program in conjunction with the assistance of the FBI is designed to help teachers, parents and students develop good habits while surfing the internet.
All of our schools in Lassen County have a subscription to iSafe Gold. This program offers a unique approach to internet safety training , with 281 lessons and easy to use videos, lesson plans, power point presentations, webcasts and teacher resource newsletters.
Never give out any of the following information online (other than to a banking type institution): Full Name, Address, City, Account Numbers, Mother's Maiden Name or Social Security Number. Legitimate institutions will never ask you for your password, so never give it out and if they insist they need it, ask them to reset it.
