Ugly and Hurtful Internet Apps

Dear Parents and Students,


Our high school, like other schools, continues to address the hurtful nature of the many different types of public technologies that when used inappropriately can be incredibly damaging, ugly, and hurtful.  With the onset of new apps sold on the public market as methods of speaking under the cloak of anonymity, this is becoming an ever-increasing problem for families and their children.  Please understand that we do everything in our power to stop all bullying behaviors.  However, disciplining any child means addressing the facts with indisputable evidence.  Believe me, I understand that parenting in today's world is far more difficult due to the electronically connected nature of our children, good and bad.  As such, I strongly encourage parents and students to remain safe, engage in openly honest ongoing dialogue about the possible implications of using things like facebook, twitter, itunes, and dropbox, but even more importantly, with regard to those apps that are obviously more negative and hurtful like “Yik Yak.”  As a school, we know all too well about the discovery of deleted or hidden posts that have come back to haunt both children and adults who thought their posts were gone forever.  So please, be cautious about what sites you use, and about what you post electronically on any site.  At Morris Community High School, it is our mission to "provide to each student the opportunity to achieve academically, personally, and socially to his/her fullest potential.”  No one can achieve in these areas if they are always focused on negative interactions.  Our hope, that we might all address the things we can, as we attempt to minimize the visibility of all that is beyond our control.  




Mr. Kelly J. Hussey
