As we head into summer, I wanted to share that, in response to a few inquiries about parent resources for navigating the world of social media, Dr. DeRoche, Dir. of Curriculum & Instructional Technology, has rebuilt our Parent Resource page and updated it with helpful articles and websites for parents. The resources on this page are aligned to our K-12 curriculum initiatives and support a balanced approach to technology. Additionally, we have added a parent resource section to MERSD Weekly that will also include timely articles and tips on social media and a wide range of student related issues.
