Your part: I am asking you to help. Ask your child to show you DestinyQuest, and write down their username and password. This username (Note from me: they probably will and should change their password in middle school) is the same one they will have throughout their time in Minneapolis Public Schools, and I am working to make it clear to them that nothing they do on their MPS accounts is private. Once they learn email (or if they already have it), check their accounts often, let them know that it is an open mailbox until they’re 18. If your child already has a Facebook account, please be aware that legally they must be 13 to register for an account; I suggest deactivating it until that time for their own safety. Once they do have an online presence, make YOUR presence very clear. Make sure they know that this is for their own safety, for the same reason you would not give them keys to your car or their own apartment.
