Greetings Camarena Families. Camarena is a school with a variety of web-based applications including school and class websites, social media in both closed (Edmodo) and Twitter (open) environments. We believe there are many beneficial reasons for sharing the great work that is going on in our classrooms to outside communities. We are also aware of the need to maintain privacy and safety for our students. To that end, we will be sending out a media release form this week to obtain permission from every family to share photos or videos of your child on the Internet. If you wish to keep your child’s picture from appearing on any sites, we will of course, honor that request. When we do post children’s photos for the purpose of showing the great work that is going on at Camarena we will either use no names or ONLY first names of children and we will never publish both first and last name without previous and specific consent from parents. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions regarding this process.
