Communication and Social Media

Kennedy Catholic faculty, staff, coaches, and volunteers follow the Archdiocesan policies on communicating with minors.

Social Media: Kennedy Catholic High School supports the use of social media in communicating, engaging, connecting and sharing information with the Lancer community. ‘Social Media’ is defined as media designed to communicate online through social interaction using highly accessible public publishing forums such as, but not limited to; Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn, blogs, message boards and other social platforms. Any social media account considered a public account representing the interests of Kennedy Catholic High School is the property of Kennedy Catholic High School. Permission to start such a site must be obtained from the Development Office. Staff are prohibited from ‘friending’, accepting a ‘friend request’ from a student, or ‘following’ a student on a personal social media page.

As an organization with a commitment to excellence in education and the safety of our students, as well as the preservation of our outstanding reputation as a school, the standards for appropriate online communication at Kennedy Catholic High School are high. While we respect the right of students, employees, alumni, and other members of our community to utilize the variety of private social media options available, faculty and students are expected to follow the same behavioral standards online as mandated by current school and archdiocesan policies.

Code of Conduct: All posts and comments should be marked by Christian charity and respect for the truth. They should be on topic and presume the good will of other posters. Discussion should take place primarily from a faith perspective. (From Social Media – Principles, Policies and Guidelines for Parishes, Schools and Programs of the Archdiocese of Seattle)
