  • We have "shadow" Facebook and Twitter that we are internally-only exploringand playing with this semester before launching anything that would gooutside Admin/teachers. We’re a small (<200 students), pre-K – Grade 5, Episcopal school in Menlo Park, CA.We were hearing, increasingly, from our young parents that they use such things to communicate, almost exclusively. We knew that we’d need to jump on the bandwagon but had heard horror stories, so we wanted to have full control before we just put things out there; hence the “shadow” accounts. Most of us did NOT use FB or TW, so we wanted to get educated and to play around with things. Once we evaluate, we will likely launch in New Year or next School Year.B.Michael McFarlandDirector of DevelopmentTrinity School2650 Sand Hill RoadMenlo Park, CA 94025T: 650.854.0288x150F: 650.854.1374e: bmcfarland@trinity-mp.org
