Families with children enrolled in the school, or unknown parties do not have permission to upload any school-sponsored image, depicting other families’ children without the explicit written permission of the parent(s) or guardian(s) of the child(ren) in the picture. Families, may, however, upload any school-sponsored image of their child to their personal online accounts.
The parent(s) or guardian(s) may rescind their consent at any time by filing a new Parental Consent Form.

Any school-sponsored, photographed and/or videoed image (whether captured “as is” or altered with photo-editing technology software) of any student (or group of students), used by anyone on any online social media site or website to exploit or bully the person(s) in the image or video will be subject to criminal investigation.
