Carl Stuart Middle School is hosting an internet safety class at 6:15 p.m. April 10 at the Conway High School Cafeteria.
The event, "Keeping Children Safe Online," is open to the public.
This is not the first event the district has hosted in hopes to educate parents about the dangers of social media and the internet overall and give them the tools to help keep their kids safe from those harms.
"The challenges and issues our students face online are very real and extremely dangerous," communication specialist Heather Kendrick said. "Things in the internet and social media realm change so quickly that these parent events are very helpful."
She said she doesn't know if parents can ever know enough in this area.
During the event, parents will hear from Faulkner County Chief Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Carol Crews, Conway Police Department Detective Brian Williams, Faulkner County Circuit Judge Troy Braswell and Kristina Carnes, the community educator from the Arkansas Attorney General’s office, all of which have spoken at multiple internet safety events across the county.
During one of these previous information meetings, Crews spoke on how important it was for parents to be aware of what's out there and how crucial it is to what could happen.
