ProtectMIChild Child Protection Registry
The State of Michigan offers a free program to stop adult advertisements from reaching e-mails, mobile phones (text messaging ads), and instant messenger IDs. The Michigan Child Protection Registry, created by the Michigan State Legislature in 2004, allows Michigan schools and families to protect their students from receiving adult-oriented messages and can be located at www.ProtectMiChild.com. Registered addresses and numbers are protected from messages that advertise pornography, tobacco, illegal drugs, alcohol, and gambling. The Michigan Child Protection Registry can include family addresses for adults, children, and school domains. Beal City Public Schools has already added all school-provided student and staff email addresses to the registry. We encourage parents to visit the registry to add family email addresses and mobile phone numbers.
