From Superintendent Jordan:
At approximately 9:45 AM this morning local authorities informed us that a bomb threat had been received specifically naming the Ridge View Community School. All students and staff were safely evacuated to Dexter Regional High School where parents were reunified with their children. A State Police canine bomb-sniffing unit performed an extensive search of the school and found nothing suspicious. The school will be in session tomorrow with an added Police presence. Thank you to all of the staff, students, and the Dexter Police Department for handling a very stressful situation in a calm professional manner.

Starting in late January, Administrators and Teachers and MSAD #46 will be beginning a bi-monthly feature of posts, dedicated to sharing tips, resources, activities, ideas, and more on the topic of “Digital Citizenship.” The series will be called “Did You Know, MSAD #46…” and is meant for students, parents, guardians, families, and community members

According to Common Sense Media, the core components of Digital Citizenship are:

Self-Image and Identity

Relationships and Communication

Digital Footprint and Reputation

Cyberbullying and Digital Drama

Information Literacy

Internet Safety

Privacy and Security

Creative Credit and Copyright

These feature posts will highlight resources from Common Sense Media and others to help all of our education stakeholders to identify and practice what it means to be a digital citizen in todays globalized world. We hope you find this feature series both useful and enjoyable!
