JUNIOR PROM:

Dear Students and Parents, 

Continuing through the year and attending to calendared events has not escaped us during these challenging times. 

Please note that due to the need to social distance, and under the conditions in which we currently reside, planning for the Junior Prom is no longer a possibility.  We are saddened to have to inform you that the Class of 2021 Junior Prom has been canceled. Even a possible return after the April 14th date will not afford preparation or compliance of social distancing as called for by the President through April 30th. 

Again, we are sorry to inform you of this cancellation. We hope the families directly impacted by the effects of COVID-19 are  experiencing improved conditions; and that all others remain safe during this very challenging time. 

Sincerely, 

Michael J. Murphy

Principal

    Internet Safety Resource for Parents

    Hello Parents/Guardians!
    Chances are your students already use social media. It is important for both parents and teachers to understand the potential issues and safety concerns that come along with it. That’s why Pearl River School District is proud to announce our new partnership with SmartSocial.com.

    We want to help keep your family safe online and on social media. To keep your kids safe, we have partnered with SmartSocial.com, the leaders in online training videos and resources to help parents navigate the negative (and positive) parts of social media for their kids.

    The District has purchased a number of Smart Social Memberships for parents. (Available on a first come first serve basis) This is a unique opportunity to learn from experts in the social media space - from the comfort of your home or office.

    Author and SmartSocial.com Founder Josh Ochs has created a one-of-a-kind online program called Digital Driver’s Ed. The courses teach parents and students:
    • The dangers of social media (including screen time addiction, online predators, mental health issues, and more)
    • Tips for talking to kids about technology and setting smartphone guidelines
    • Popular apps for students (including step-by-step instructions to turn on safety settings)
    • How students can use social media to shine online (they’ll learn to create a positive digital footprint to help them get into college or land future jobs)
    These short video courses appeal to both technology experts and parents who aren’t as tech savvy. Our school’s membership gives each family access to the Smart Social courses for free until June 30, 2020.

    Please fill out this Google Form (https://tinyurl.com/PRsmartsocial) to receive the direct link to access your free membership.

    Here are some of the courses you will be able to take:
    • Dangers Every Parent Should Know Before Giving Their Student An iPhone
    • How To Set Up Parental Controls On An iPhone
    • TikTok, Snapchat, Instagram App Courses (For Parents)
    • Mental Health Topics, Including Connecting with Friends in a Positive Way Online! (Parents and Students)
    • And 10+ courses to make you a social media expert. Register today!
