 Please ... No Facebook Tagging

Ms. Van Slyke would like to request that choir students who use Facebook please refrain from tagging other people in photos and videos of Herndon Choir concerts and events. Identifying students besides yourself creates the potential for privacy violations and suggests an endorsement of Facebook use in the Choir program. Your cooperation is appreciated. Thank you!
