Lyme School E-Mail Acceptable Use Procedure
Eighth grade students may be provided with e-mail accounts
as part of the technology curriculum. Students will be able
to send and receive mail to people within the building and
anywhere else on the Internet. Each student will be responsible
for all activity on his or her e-mail account. Students must
obtain parental permission and sign and return the Lyme School
e-mail permission form to get an e-mail account.
Ultimately, parents/guardians of minors are responsible for
setting and conveying the standards that their children should
follow when using electronic resources. To that end, we support
and respect each family’s right to decide whether or
not to apply for an e-mail account.
Individual Users shall:
Understand that use of the electronic mail
system is not confidential and may be monitored at any time
by designated staff to ensure appropriate use.
Be responsible at all times for the proper
use of their account by taking all reasonable precautions to
prevent others from gaining access to their account and password.
Not use another person’s account or password,
or present themselves as another person.
Understand and abide by all the provisions
of the Lyme School Internet Acceptable Use policy when using
Use of e-mail is subject to the provisions of the Lyme School Internet
Acceptable Use Policy and other existing school policies, as indicated
in the Lyme School Handbook. The principal and technology coordinator
will determine whether specific uses of e-mail are consistent with
school policies. If there is evidence that a violation has occurred,
the Principal shall be notified and will determine appropriate consequences.
