Sharing on Social Media

posted Sep 27, 2016, 4:29 PM by UCHA Council

Some members of our group have made the conscious decision to not share pictures of themselves or their families on social media. When taking photos of your children participating in classes, clubs, and field trips, please be aware of who else may be in the shot, speak to the parent/s of those children before sharing anything publicly, and respect their wishes. Thanks, everyone, for honoring each others' privacy! ~ Liz
