Twitter will be back, but we want to ask you, is what you post . . .
True? And if it’s true (or you believe it to be) is it also
Helpful? If you think it helps someone, does it also
Inspire confidence in you, your word and your values? If it is inspiring, is it also
Necessary, that is, does it add to the world of information? And if you think it’s necessary, is it also
If what you are posting is not ALL of these things, don’t post:
We know we can’t stop you from posting online, but we care for you enough to say that you should protect yourself and your peers from the negative consequences and burdens of words that are damaging.
*Do not tell yourself that you aren’t a part of the problem
because you think your
Tweets or posts are vague, hidden or anonymous.*
Also, students, we hope you will show that you appreciate the privileges you have of a largely open network and respectful personal electronics policies we have put in place to support your 21st Century learning.
Please show us that you can THINK before you post and that you appreciate the privileges you have while we consider the impact of our words. Make your community, the people who care about you, your pastors, grandmothers, fathers, school leaders, and teachers proud of you by “thinking” before you post/text/Tweet, or speak.
