Dear Tri-Point Student-Athletes and Parents/Guardians,

 

As athletic seasons begin, the administration and athletic department of the Tri-Point School wants to make sure you are aware of the “social media” guidelines and consequences. We recognize and support the student-athletes’ and their parents/guardians rights to freedom of speech, expression, and association, including the use of social media networks. However, each student-athlete and parent/guardian must remember that playing and competing, and attending and cheering on student-athletes for Tri-Point is a privilege. As a student-athlete and parent/guardian, you are representing the Tri-Point School District and the communities within our district. You are expected to portray yourself, the team, the school, and the communities in a positive manner at all times.

 

Social media refers to internet-based applications designed to create and share user-generated content and comes in a variety of forms, such as: Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram, Tumblr, blogs, photos, video, etc...This is a rapid and ever changing network, and many more not mentioned will arise, which will also fall under the umbrella of this policy.

 

Below you will find some things to remember about social networking:

Everything you post is public information – any text or photo placed online is completely out of your control the moment it is placed online – even if you limit access to your site. Information (including pictures, videos, and comments) may be accessible even after you remove it. Once you post a photo or comment on a social networking site, that photo or comment becomes the property of the site and may be searchable even after you remove it.

What you post may affect your future. Many employers and college admissions officers review social networking sites as part of their overall evaluation of an applicant. Carefully consider how you want people to perceive you before you give them a chance to misinterpret your information (including pictures, videos, comments, and posters)

Similar to comments made in person, the Tri-Point School District 6J will not tolerate disrespectful comments and behavior online, such as:

Derogatory language or remarks that may harm my teammates or coaches; other Tri-Point student athletes, teachers, or coaches; and student-athletes, coaches, or representatives of other schools, including comments that may disrespect my opponents.

Incriminating photos or statements depicting violence; hazing; sexual harassment; full or partial nudity; inappropriate gestures; vandalism, stalking; underage drinking, selling, possessing, or using controlled substances; or any other inappropriate behaviors.

Creating a serious danger to the safety of another person or making a credible threat of serious physical or emotional injury to another person.

Indicating knowledge of an unreported school or team violation—regardless if the violation was unintentional or intentional.

In short, do not have a false sense of security about your rights to freedom of speech. Understand that freedom of speech is not unlimited. The online social network sites are NOT a place where you can say and do whatever you want without repercussions. The information you post on a social networking site is considered public information. Protect yourself by maintaining a self-image of which you can be proud for years to come.

 

As a condition of being a student-athlete and a parent/guardian of a student-athlete at Tri-Point, both parties must abide by the following rules related to the use of the internet and social media:

 

Any postings or communications via social networking websites, which disrupt the educational or athletic environments or which advocates the violation of any school or team policy would be unacceptable.

Similar to comments made in person, the school will not tolerate disrespectful comments and behavior, such as:

Derogatory language, remarks, and/or gestures that may harm teammates, coaches, teachers, administration, fellow parents/guardians, and the school itself.

Derogatory language, remarks, and/or gestures that may disrespect the opponents (being unsportsmanlike) and the people that represent the opposing school. Such as: players, coaches, administration, etc…

May not post online any pictures, information, or other content that might cause embarrassment to players, fellow student-athletes, coaches, teachers, administration, fellow parents/guardians, and the school itself.

May not post anything that creates a serious danger to the safety of another person or making credible threat of serious physical or emotional injury to another person.

May not post any information that is sensitive or personal in nature or indicating knowledge of an unreported school or team violation - regardless if the violation was unintentional or intentional.

 

Student-athletes and parents/guardians are required to abide rules set forth in these guidelines.

 

FAILURE to do so will be considered a violation of the student-athlete and parent/guardian code of conduct. The violation may result in disciplinary action by the athletic director and the administration of the school.

 

1st Offense: May be a warning and student-athlete and/or parent/guardian meeting with the coach, athletic director, and/or administration. Consequences will be determined based on the severity of the infraction and may include suspension or dismissal from the team for student-athlete and possible removal from attending home and/or away contests for the parent/guardian.

 

2nd Offense: Meeting with student-athlete and/or parent/guardian and athletic director and administration. Consequences will be dismissal from the team for the student-athlete and/or removal of parent/guardian from attending home and away contests for the remainder of that specific activity. Social media accounts of the user, could be blocked from all Tri-Point CUSD #6J social media forums. (Including but not limited to; ban from livestreaming games and matches)

 

We thank you for your continued support of our athletes and coaches.
