|We invite your teenaged HEO students (age 13 to 19) to come join the student area of this forum. Only teens will be able to participate in everything there; parents of teens will have read-only access to the general chat and will be able to post only in the parent/teen discussion area.
Moderators are Tim (AO grad and the son of Leslie Noelani Laurio), Hannah (an AO grad and Tim's wife), and Rebecca (AO grad and daughter of WendiC). They are assisted by Jacob and Abby (AO students), Miriam (AO student), Imogen (AO grad), and Bailie (AO student and daughter of Kathy Livingston). Only the Advisory and Auxiliary, the moderators of the student area, and the parents of students will be able to see that area and what your children are writing. We're really trying to keep it safe and private for them, so we ask that you would follow these steps to get them in.
Your student must be at least 13 to participate because of legalities with children and the internet.
1. Send a PM to Phyllis with your username, your teen's birthdate, your teen's desired username and your teen's email address. The teen's email address can be the same as yours or different.
2. Wait for an email with a temporary password, sent to the address associated with your teen's account. He/she should reset that password to something personal and memorable and then join the fun! Once they've graduated, AO Students can participate in the AO Alumni area of the forum. They can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request a transfer to that area if they are already members of the teen area. AO graduates who are just joining the forum for the first time can tell us their status in their join request.
