Take an active role in your child’s online safety with SecurlyHome
Your child’s online safety, in the palm of your hand. The time to take action is now. We recognize that student safety and well-being in the online world is a shared responsibility between our schools and families, and with Securly - the district’s cloud-based filtering system - taking an active role in your child’s online safety has never been easier.
DOWNLOAD SecurlyHome Parent Portal app*: With the SecurlyHome Parent Portal app, families can monitor student technology use and customize filters on district devices outside of the BV Network/IP Address.* This app is currently available to families with students who received a district Chromebook/MacBook to use at school and home, including current 6th, 7th, 9th, 10th and 11th graders. Watch the video below for instructions to download/configure the app. SecurlyHome accounts are tied to the email address you have listed in ParentVUE. If you need assistance adding or updating your email in ParentVUE, call the front office of your child’s school.
RECEIVE self-harm notifications: Families who download the SecurlyHome Parent Portal app will automatically be opted-in to receive mobile push notifications if their child searches content related to self-harm on a district-provided device. While school personnel may monitor online activity on district devices when students are connected to the BV Network/IP Address, it is the responsibility of our families to monitor online activity on district devices in the evenings, on weekends, over holidays and during school breaks by downloading the SecurlyHome Parent Portal app. For resources to help talk to your child about their well-being, visit https://www.bluevalleyk12.org/studentwellbeing.
PAUSE access to the internet: With SecurlyHome, families can temporarily disable/pause access to the internet on their child’s district device outside of the BV Network/IP Address. This feature is currently functional on Chromebooks and is projected to be available for MacBooks in the near future.
REVIEW weekly online activity emails: Families will receive weekly email reports from Securly containing a sample of their child’s online activity on district-provided Chromebooks/MacBooks as part of the 1:Learner initiative. Those who do not want email updates can opt out by clicking Unsubscribe at the bottom of the Securly email.
*PLEASE NOTE: Custom filters/rules set through the SecurlyHome Parent Portal will only apply when a district device is NOT connected to the BV Network/IP Address. Once a student reconnects to the BV Network/IP Address, district devices will follow Blue Valley’s filters.
