Parents and Guardians,

We are aware of current social media postings encouraging students to engage in unwanted touching of staff members (hitting them on their backside). We want to remind you that any form of unwanted touching or assault is strictly prohibited, violates the District policies and procedures, and may be against the law. Students found to have engaged in or encouraged this type of conduct will be subject to discipline up to and including suspension or expulsion. This conduct may also violate good conduct rules and expectations for athletics and other extracurricular activities.  

Please have conversations with your child about these social media challenges and the consequences that may come from such actions. We appreciate your support and partnership.
