On September 15, 2022, Halsted was happy to host again, the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office Supervising Assistant Prosecutor Samantha DeNegri and Sergeant Patrick LaGuerre to discuss cyberbullying and bias crimes with our 5-8th graders.  The two did the same presentation with our students in June of 2022. The MCPO routinely conducts presentations at schools throughout Morris County and the surrounding region to engage with area youth about exercising good judgment when it comes to how they interact with others online or in school.

SAP DeNegri and Sgt. LaGuerre stressed that students should be mindful of what they post and how they interact on social media because how you conduct yourself online could potentially impact your future. Social media and technology today document everything, even photos and messages you assume were deleted or only temporary, including ones you believe to be private. This data can be accessed and potentially shared after being deleted, they said.  Furthermore, SAP DeNegri and Sgt. LaGuerre explained the difference between bias crimes and bias incidents, cautioning students that their school administrators can choose to take disciplinary action even if an incident isn’t considered criminal.  Students were also given the chance to ask questions following the presentation.
