Governor Mike DeWine and Lieutenant John Husted have declared February 16-22, 2020 Digital Wellness Week in the state of Ohio.
The proclamation states, “In today’s world, it’s more important than ever that we successfully prepare our youth on how to interact socially, personally, and educationally in online environments.”
Digital Wellness Week is a statewide initiative designed to encourage Ohio students to make safe, healthy, and positive decisions in our technology-rich world. There are four focus areas; well-being, citizenship, etiquette, and safety.
In Hilliard, we recognize February as Digital Wellness Month. Each week we work on a specific topic with students and send home links for families to become engaged at home.
