Sepember 2017 Newsletter

May 12, 2017 -- Repeated on September 4, 2017

 

Dear Old Mill Families and Friends:

 

I am repeating an e-newsletter that went out on May 12, 2017, concerning safety rules for our school including the cafeteria which seems to be an area that continues to be an area of concern. It is imperative that visitors abide by our safety protocols and school food service regulations from the state and district.

In addition to what I have below, I need to address picture taking in the school. There are confidentiality regulations for some classifications of students. Because of this, visitors are not allowed to take pictures during the school day in the classroom or cafeteria. These are captive times and visitors would have no way to know which students cannot be photographed. However, cameras and video cameras are welcome at after school events such as concerts, family nights, and class basketball nights. Families are bringing their children here willingly for evening events which are considered legally as public events; therefore, there are no restrictions on picture taking and video taping.

We have seen evidence of picture taking during the school day such as lunch time in the cafeteria and then the pictures are posted on Facebook which is a federal, state, and district violation of some children's rights. Therefore, please do not bring picture taking devices or use Smart phones to take pictures or videos of students during the school day at Old Mill.
