Social Media Guidelines

The Moses Lake School District maintains social media accounts as an avenue to communicate important news and information to students, staff, and the public. The District respects the differing opinions of our community, however, this page is not intended to be an open public forum. The District encourages community members to comment on its posts to provide their opinions and feedback to the District, but all comments must be kept to the topic of the District’s original post. The District’s social media accounts are not intended to replace regular communication channels for sharing personal issues and concerns. Comments regarding a personal issue with the District, a school, or a staff member should be handled directly through email, phone, or in person.

Practice Civility and Respect. Our audience includes families and school-aged children, and users should keep that audience in mind when making comments.
