SPECIAL EVENTS AND PRESENTATIONS

Parents, Guardians, Students and School Community Members

We are writing to ask your support to overcome a difficulty we have been experiencing recently. We are concerned with the lack of attendance of senior high students at recent special events, presentations, and assemblies.   These special sessions are an integral part of our educational programming at Digby Regional High School.  Many of our greatest current issues such as bullying, alcohol and substance abuse, inappropriate internet use are partially addressed during these assemblies. At the same time, during these sessions, we honor our veterans, our history, our culture, and recognize notable accomplishments by our own students.  

Recently we have found many students do not attend these planned special events and parents are actually calling in to excuse students.  We would encourage you, unless it is for a valid medical reason, appointment or excuse, to support our effort to educate your sons and daughters by not excusing them.   Attendance for these events is essential during instructional time. I hope you recognize the value of our attempts to address very serious issues and pay reasonable respect to the accomplishment of Canadians and our own students.

Thank you in advance for your continued support.
Sincerely,

Ben McNeil
DRHS Administration

PARENTS NEED TO BE AWARE OF SEXTORTIONISTS TARGETING TEENS

The Canadian Centre for Child Protection is warning parents about an increasing and serious trend involving Canadian youth being extorted for money. In the last few weeks, Cybertip.ca, Canada’s national tipline for reporting the online sexual exploitation of children, has seen a concerning rise in teenagers reporting issues surrounding video communication with adults posing as teenagers. On platforms that allow users to communicate by video, offenders are secretly recording teenagers exposing themselves and then threatening to share the sexual content if they don’t pay money (often hundreds of dollars) to the individual.
While many teens understand the dangers associated with recording and sharing sexual images and videos, they may not be as aware of the risks associated with live video feeds. With relative ease over live streaming, anyone can capture a still image or video of a person sexually exposing themselves – all without the other person’s knowledge.
Parents need to have regular, open dialogue with their teen around this topic encouraging the teen to seek parental support in situations like this. It is also important to talk to teens about never complying with threats online, since in most cases this will only make matters worse. We strongly encourage parents to take the time and learn more about ways to increase your teen’s safety online by visiting www.needhelpnow.ca and the Internet Safety section of the Cybertip.ca website.
In the past few weeks, Cybertip.ca has seen a rise in reports from youth involving sextortion. These cases have involved offenders (posing as teenagers) secretly recording teenagers exposing themselves online and then threatening to share the sexual content if they don’t pay money (often hundreds of dollars) to the individual.

In response to this emerging issue of concern, the Canadian Centre for Child Protection has issued a Cybertip.ca Alert for parents as well as a tip sheet on how parents can talk to youth about online extortion:
· Alert: https://protectchildren.ca/app/en/media_release_201409_sextortionists_teens
· Tip Sheet for Parents: https://protectchildren.ca/pdfs/C3P_SafetySheet_OnlineExtortion_en.pdf

The Centre also encourages all parents to sign-up for Cybertip.ca Alerts to receive information on concerning technology trends as they emerge. Click here to sign-up: https://www.cybertip.ca/app/en/signup.
