The Hopkinton Public Schools Wellness Committee is providing the following FREE seminar, "Virtual Reality / Real Danger - Understanding How To Navigate Modern Cyberspace". The event will be held on February 5th at Hopkinton High School Auditorium from 6:30-8:30pm. The format is directed at protection of children focusing on cyber-safety. With so much technology at the finger tips of children today, recognizing dangerous behaviors can be very difficult.

The Middlesex Partnerships for Youth, Inc., a sub-division of the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office, will present along with various Hopkinton town and school officials.
