Who Needs Netiquette?

Anyone who uses the Internet to communicate is responsible to the person with whom they are commnicating. Salmon River Joint School District Policy 3270 states that network users are required to be polite, refrain from using profanities, keep personal information confidential, and refrain from using the network in any way that could disrupt its use by other users.

 

Think Before You Send

Read your message over before sending it to check for polite tone and appropriate language, omitting personal information--whether it's yours or other's.Remember, e-mail is public. People who manage the network have access to all mail. Messages relating to or in support of illegal activities may be reported to the authorities. All communications and information accessible via the network is considered private property.
