As part of its Parent University series, the Riverhead Central School District hosted a valuable Technology Night for parents and caregivers on Jan. 25.

During the event, participants attended informational sessions related to digital citizenship, educational apps for learning, coding, engineering and robotics, cellphone usage, the parent portal and technological resources available at the library. 

The event also gave students an opportunity to take part in educational activities related to technology, such as Hour of Code. 

The Parent University series aims to connect parents with school and community resources and provide information related to challenges parents may face. Additional workshops and seminars featuring a variety of speakers are planned for later this school year.
