Occasionally students report to school administration that they have received inappropriate, intimidating, threatening and/or unwanted communication from a fellow student outside of school through social media. In some cases when this activity takes place off-campus, school sanctions do not apply. For this reason, parents are encouraged to closely monitor or curtail their students' use of social media. In serious situations, parents may need to contact the police directly and follow up with an informational call to the school. When social media activity is found to be negatively impacting the learning environment, school administration will intervene and school sanctions will apply.
