Engaging in meaningful and respectful discussions on social media is a valuable way for our school community to connect, share ideas, and stay informed. Our social media platforms are an extension of our school community so we ask all members of our community to adhere to the following guidelines when participating in social media conversations:
- Respectful Communication: Please communicate with respect, kindness, and empathy. Treat others’ opinions and viewpoints with consideration, even if you disagree. Avoid using offensive language, personal attacks, or any form of bullying. Be polite!
- Avoid Disruptive Behavior: Do not engage in disruptive behavior such as spamming, trolling, or inciting conflicts. We encourage healthy discussions that contribute positively to our school community.
- Privacy and Confidentiality: Respect the privacy of individuals and avoid sharing sensitive or private information in your comments. Remember that social media is a public platform.
- Use Appropriate Language and Tone: Ensure your language and tone are appropriate for a school setting. Refrain from using profanity, offensive language, or any content that may be considered inappropriate.
- Ask Questions: Feel free to ask questions or seek clarification if you’re unsure about something. Engaging in thoughtful dialogue can help everyone better understand various perspectives.
- No advertising: Unauthorized advertising, business solicitation, promotional items, “spam” or junk mail will be removed.
- Flag Inappropriate Content: If you come across a comment that violates these guidelines, please flag it or report it to the appropriate administrators. We appreciate your help in maintaining a positive online environment.
To ensure the well-being of all participants and maintain the integrity of our social media platforms, we have established the following consequences for individuals who do not adhere to our social media guidelines:
- Comment Removal: In cases where a comment violates our guidelines but does not warrant severe action, the comment may be promptly removed by our administrators. This helps to maintain the quality and tone of the conversation.
- Warning: If a user repeatedly violates our social media guidelines, they may receive a warning from our administrators. This warning will serve as a reminder to follow the guidelines and engage respectfully.
- Ban: Persistent or severe violations of our social media guidelines may result in a permanent ban from our platforms. This action is taken to protect the well-being and experience of our school community members.
