Tips for Keeping Your Child Safe Online:

So how can you protect your child online?

  • Talk to your kids about what they’re doing online. Find out which games, social networking sites, and other online activities your kids are into and make sure you are comfortable with them.

  • Download the Securly Home App - This app will allow you to see search history when your child is using a Winlock School District Chromebook. To request access, please fill out THIS FORM. We will email your login credentials.

  • Talk to your children about the implications of providing personal information.

  • Help your kids understand what information should stay private. Tell your kids why it's important to keep information like Social Security numbers, street addresses, phone numbers, and financial information private.

  • File a complaint with the FTC if you think a site has put your child’s privacy at risk.

Here you'll find all the information you'll need to begin your schoolwork virtually and find support resources as you use your school technology. All students are being issued a WSD Chromebook. Our WSD Technology Department will only be able to support these devices.

Step 1: Login using your school-issued email address. If you are a new student, someone from your school will reach out with your new school email address for you to use your district-issued Chromebook. From there you will find instructions, class assignments, and everything you need to know to begin school. You can find additional instructions for logging into your chrome device from home.

Step 3: Connecting to a Hotspot (if needed) You must first check out a hotspot from your child's building if you need one. We have limited hotspots so please only take 1 (per family) if you need it. You will first power on the hotspot. Once one, you will go to your Chromebook WiFi area and look for "Kajeet smartspot###". Click on this WiFi spot, then enter the code "smartspot" with the 4 digit code that was given to you when you pick up the device. Download the Student & Parent Guide to using a hotspot. Both English and Spanish versions are part of the download.
