    If you do not consent, we will rely on you to counsel your child to exclude themselves from photo opportunities and rely on your child to exercise their judgement. We will support the exercise of judgement by providing all students with information and instruction about digital citizenship and information about the purpose of our photo opportunities.

    We will also entertain any requests for removal of images from digital media that we control.
