Happy Valley tackles cyberbullying
HAPPY VALLEY, Ore.—Happy Valley is tackling cyberbullying and giving parents and students the tools and information they need to be safe while using technology.
Happy Valley Mayor Lori Chavez-DeRemer is welcoming attendees at Cyber Safety Night tonight at Happy Valley Middle School.
“Cyberbullying starts and ends with adults. Our kids need us to be role models,” said Chavez-DeRemer. “This event strikes a serious note, in an inviting way, and that’s what we want to achieve, because this is a tough issue. Parents should never feel insecure about asking questions but social media can be daunting.”
The event features a presentation on internet safety from FBI Special Agent George Chamberlain.
“When I ran for Happy Valley City Council, one of the things I ran on was safety in our schools. As the only councilor with children in our local schools, I am excited to see how we as a city are partnering with North Clackamas Schools to improve the safety and well-being of our students,” City Councilor David Golobay said.
“I’m looking forward to the continued work on this issue because the youth are more than just our future, they are our now.”
The event is in partnership with the FBI, Happy Valley Police, Clackamas County Sheriff and North Clackamas Schools.
