Teachers and Staff, I cannot believe how well you have all jumped right into digital learning! You are nothing short of amazing. I wanted to thank you for also paying close attention to confidentiality issues during this time. I have seen examples of you still working to keep students information safe and confidential and I appreciate that. If you have any questions about what we can and cannot do, please feel free to call, text or email me any time! Remember Personally Identifiable Information (PII) can be anything used to identify a particular person. Name, Student Number, Email, Homeroom, Picture, etc. Good rule of thumb is to never have more than one piece of PII. For example, if you share a picture don't include a name; if you are referencing a student by name only use first names, never use email because it shows first and last name. You get the idea. Again, you are doing GREAT! If you need anything I am here for you.
Jennifer Kincaid, CIO
