Kid’s Page

We at the Town of Blacksburg are especially concerned about protecting children’s privacy. We hope parents and teachers are involved in children’s Internet explorations. Our page for kids encourages children to email ideas to us, however providing personal information is entirely optional. We ask that children get their parents’ or guardian’s permission before providing any information online, at our site or any other site, and hope parents will always be involved in those decisions. Most importantly, when children do provide information through our web site, it is only used to enable us to respond to that specific request.
