Social Media Guidelines

The purpose of the Lincoln County R-III School District's social media presence is to facilitate an ongoing dialogue on education in our schools. The R-III District is dedicated to instilling good character in our students through our character education program. Therefore, the Lincoln County R-III Schools only encourage an environment, online or otherwise, that supports this initiative.  

We encourage your comments; your ideas and concerns are important to ensure that a broad range of community members are active and informed participants in the discussion. Lincoln County R-III School District reserves the right to modify this policy at any time and expressly reserves the right to remove comments from its pages and ban users that violate our guidelines if deemed necessary.

Lincoln County R-III Schools retains the right to remove or not remove comments. In addition, we expect participants will treat each other, as well as our district, our employees, and our students, with respect. Comments may be removed if they fall into the following categories:

We won't edit comments to remove objectionable content, so please ensure that your comments contain none of the above. To protect your own privacy and the privacy of others, please do not include personally identifiable information, such as name, Social Security number, addresses, phone numbers, or email addresses in the body of your comment.

In the R-III District, parents can have their students excluded from being featured on social media channels, district, or school by contacting their child's school. This will not exclude your child from wide group shots in large assembly-like (or otherwise) settings photographs. It does include photos where your child is clearly visible and identifiable in the foreground or background of photographs. Each school will verify media exclusions before utilizing a photo on social media or website.
