Social Media and Cyberbullying

The school discourages student use of social media, however, it is understood that this is a parent decision and that parents are also responsible for monitoring their child’s online behavior.  Should a student use social media or any technology to harass other students, compose uncomplimentary posts about other students, or in any way participate in behavior that is detrimental to themselves, other students, or the school, the school will respond appropriately.  Depending on the nature of the behavior, the school may issue a detention, a suspension, or an expulsion.  The school works together with parents to make it clear to students that any online behavior that affects other students or the school will result in disciplinary consequences. 

Social Media and Photo Sharing

Parents do not have permission from the school to post photos of students other than their own child (ren) taken at school events to personal social media or other sites.
