    Social Media Guidelines
    Cape Henlopen School District uses social media to provide information about our District programs, events, and activities and to interact with students, parents/guardians, and residents. We reserve the right to remove content, including, but not limited to, personnel information; individually identifiable student information; confidential material; political or campaign material; spam, advertising or commercial solicitations or information; obscene, defamatory, harassing, discriminatory, violent, threatening, vulgar, or sexual material; and comments that are not relevant to the topic they are posted to. We will not, however, remove content simply because it criticizes us. Cape embraces and encourages positive digital citizenship as a responsible way to engage with our community and we appreciate the thoughtful conversation that comes from the sharing of District information through our social media pages.
