OPT OUT LETTER

Dear Parent or Guardian,
Throughout the school year, photo and multi-media opportunities exist both in the classroom and during special events. These opportunities may include, but are not limited to, yearbook photos and candid photos, class pictures, theater productions, concerts, award assemblies, and activities covered by outside media.

Send the form below back to your child’s school by the second Friday in September ONLY if you do NOT allow your child to appear in news media or school and district publicity images.

NOTE: This opt-out does NOT apply to yearbook photographs or graduation/moving up videos for school district use.
The District will make every reasonable effort to honor requests to not publish photos/images containing students on the opt-out list. NOTE: Public events such as sporting events, some theatre productions, graduations, etc. are considered open to the public; therefore outside photographers and videographers are not governed by this policy.

If your child is not allowed to be in photographs or videos, please make sure that he/she is aware of your wishes.
