Russ Tuttle will present the Be Alert Project on Nov. 7 at 10:28 a.m.

Tuttle will bring 29 years of experience to the school to educate the students and encourage them to be safe.

The presentation is about social media. Tuttle will bring why we need to guard vulnerabilities that can be taken advantage of to the students attention.

Topics Tuttle will go over include, but are not limited to, helping the students understand manipulation tactics used by predators and that they and their peers are potential targets.

Tuttle hopes to empower the students to respond positively to manipulative situations, exercise safe practices while using social media and he will provide practical advice to help students with social media.

Tuttle’s poster say there are at least 100,000 American children being exploited through the sex industry each year.

“This was set up by central office but what had happened was the head nurse from USD 489, who retired last year, went to a conference and heard him speak and was very, very impressed,” principal Martin Straub said. “She was going to so a community event, and he was going to be in the area. She contacted Shannon and asked if we were willing to participate.”
