Principal’s News: February 2021

Educational Apps and Sites with Solid Privacy Policies
High-quality educational apps are many parents’ go-to when kids are home from school for extended periods. But even great apps can have subpar privacy. Tracking, collecting, and analyzing the data of your kids’ online activities and then sharing and selling that information to third parties is a common way app developers make money. Not all companies go that route, and Common-Sense Media recommends that families take a look under the hood before they download anything. If you want your kid using the most highly rated learning apps (and of course you do), then you should expect those apps’ privacy policies to be highly rated too.

At the App Store: Check to see whether the app even has a privacy policy — that’s the baseline requirement. Be cautious with “free” apps (in addition to sharing and selling data, they may be more likely to display targeted ads). 

After you download: Input as little information as required for registration; enable settings to restrict the app’s access to features on the device (camera, contact list, location, etc.). 

February is the month of all things LOVE, so what better way to celebrate than to eat foods which are good for your heart and cardiovascular system.  The foods that follow can help reduce blood pressure, heart attacks and deep vein thrombosis and, in general, just plain make you feel better.  As always recommended, check with your doctor before changing your diet if you have pre-existing medical conditions.

  1. For blood pressure: almonds, bananas, beets, carrots, cinnamon, citrus, ginger, sunflower seeds, turmeric and walnuts.
  2. For heart health: avocado, berries, dark chocolate (at least 85%), fish, green tea, onion, pomegranates, tomato and watermelon.
  3. For veins: cayenne, garlic, grapes and spinach.

These are just some of the foods, that will show our heart how much we love it!  Happy Valentines!
