Screen Time - New iOS Feature for Parents

Dear Chattahoochee parents,

Earlier this year the North Synergy Schools had a community outreach event that focused on internet and social media safety.  As a follow up to this event, Todd McClelland, Principal at NFMS, suggested we share a new feature that is available on Apple devices (iPhones and iPads) with the iOS 12 update.  This feature is called Screen Time and it allows parents to actively monitor where their child visits on their Apple device as well as restrict (completely or during certain times) the apps that your child can access.  Finally, this feature will let you know exactly how long each day your child spends on their Apple device and makes it possible for parents to set time limits on total time or on individual apps or websites .  Click here to visit the official Apple Screen Time page and click here for a Washington Post video on Screen Time.

 

Thanks in advance for taking the time to explore this new option!
