We have received the following information from State Superintendent Mike Flanagan regarding the Michigan Child Protection Registry and want to pass it along to our families.
Are your children safe while online? Michigan families, especially minors, are becoming inundated with advertisements from alcohol, tobacco, pornography and gambling marketers through different internet and cell phone inboxes. Thankfully, the State of Michigan offers a free program to stop adult advertisements from reaching e-mails, mobile phones (text messaging ads) and instant messenger IDs. The Michigan Child Protection Registry is a free do-not-contact service for Michigan’s families and schools and can be located at www.protectmichild.com.
As a strong supporter of this registry, I would like to encourage you to sign your entire family up for the registry, inform your friends and colleagues about how they can protect children and families from unwanted adult advertising.
