Social Media

Colonial School District is proud to provide the community with a glimpse inside our schools on a daily basis through our various social media channels. We post photos and other information multiple times a day on these platforms to keep you informed about what's going on with our students, faculty, and staff. On inclement weather days, you'll also find news about school closures or early dismissals/late arrivals.

Be sure to like or follow us on each platform to stay up-to-date on news and events. We also encourage everyone to review our Rules for Engagement before posting comments. 

Social Media Rules for Engagement

Colonial School District’s Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube accounts are meant to be another source of information to the community, as well as a place for the District to engage with its stakeholders. We welcome the opportunity to hear from you and encourage your participation.

At the same time, we would like to remind everyone about our Rules for Engagement. We expect that people exercise civility and common sense when posting comments to our pages. Please remember that your comments can be viewed by many people in our community and are considered to be in the public domain. While the District does not want to limit the opinions or comments of its community members, certain types of comments will not be tolerated.

We strongly discourage comments that:

  • Are vulgar or profane;
  • Could be offensive to or target specific ethnic or racial groups;
  • Incite violence;
  • Encourage others to break the law;
  • Could be considered campaigning for a political office;
  • Easily identify students and/or staff in defamatory, abusive or generally negative terms;
  • Promote services, products or non-district-sponsored events/causes through hyperlinks to external websites;
  • Instigate political debate or divisiveness;
  • Are unrelated to the original topic of the post.

Comments on our social media pages may be deleted or turned off if they violate expectations. We respect and value First Amendment rights, but we also strongly believe our social media channels are places where we are obligated to uphold our mission and vision. We would not tolerate comments that fall into the categories above in school or at a School Board meeting, and we will not permit them on social media, either. 

Thank you for observing the rules of engagement, and we welcome your participation and feedback.
