There has been some concern among parents recently within our school about the safety and use of the computers, iPads, and other media sources. I would like to inform you that Davis School District currently has in place a highly secure filtering system to protect our students from seeing or being exposed to inappropriate words and images. The problem is that there are so many people that want to infiltrate garbage into the system that it is a 24/7 job for our IT crew at the district to block sites.
We are educating our students at Muir three times a year on what to do when they come across something inappropriate. Students are asked to turn off the monitor, raise their hand, and our Computer teacher has them close their eyes/turn around while she retrieves the website. The Computer teacher then sends the URL address to the district and the district IT specialists block that site. We will continue to educate our students and encourage parents to do so at home also.
This is the link to the videos that students watch and talk about for internet safety at school.
The following links below are two sites that our Computer teacher will be using to have students conduct safer searches for research and PowerPoint projects.
If a student purposefully explores words/images/sites that are inappropriate they can be banned from using the computer for a certain period of time or until the end of the school year. The length of time is determined by the severity with input of parent/s and administration. If it is more severe, other measures will be addressed.

As winter is upon us, the Davis School District reminds parents and students about procedures it uses when considering school closures for inclement weather.
If the superintendent decides to close schools, that decision will be made as early as possible and before school buses hit the roadways.
In the event of a closure, the district will contact all area radio and TV stations. News about the closure will also be posted here and on Facebook and Twitter. Stations will only be notified when schools close. They will not be contacted when schools remain open.
If schools close a full day because of weather, the school day, by state law, must be made up.
Parents are also reminded they may keep their student home anytime they feel it is unsafe for them to travel to school. When that occurs, arrangements will need to be made with their teacher for any missed assignments.
