We are so pleased that you and your children are logging into your daily and other Webex meetings but...........
Please be aware of what can be seen in the background of your meeting. In the past few weeks we have had naked toddlers running around and parents in underwear. All children and adults in the house should be completely dressed whilst these meetings are occurring in order to not only save you the embarrassment of what you may accidentally be showing us and other children and adults in the meeting but also, and most importantly, to follow Child Safety protocols and policies.
