Digital Health and Wellness

Maintaining a Healthy Balance with Technology

Whether you work directly with students or you have children/grandchildren, technology is changing how we learn and communicate on a daily basis. Both family members and MA staff members play an important role in helping students learn to manage their own use of technology.  Digital Health and Wellness is an important discussion to revisit frequently with children from elementary school through high school.

In accordance with Minnehaha Academy’s Acceptable Use Policy, outside of school parents bear responsibility for the same guidance of internet use as they do with information sources such as television, telephones, radio, movies and other potentially offensive media. Therefore, parents are responsible for monitoring their student’s use of the school’s educational technologies, including school-issued email accounts and the internet if the student is accessing the school’s electronic technologies from home or through other remote location(s).
