Dear Parents and Guardians, 


This letter is being sent out on behalf of the principals and teachers of Malabar Intermediate. Over the past few months our staff has spent a significant amount of time mediating, counseling and investigating individuals and groups that are involved in Facebook. Some of our students have posted inappropriate messages. The messages have included the following:

  •          Inappropriate language/ profanity
  •         Threatening language (harassment)
  •          Spreading of rumors/gossip

Even though this behavior is occurring off campus, it is disrupting the school culture. Malabar’s mission is to provide students with a safe and secure environment. We feel it is important for parents to understand the risks of such sites so you can make informed decisions regarding this matter.

 

In closing, we will continue to provide students with an excellent education and a strong sense of pride here at Malabar. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call us.

 

 

Sincerely,

 

Andrea Moyer

Tom Hager
