Social Media Comment Policy

The official Mercy High School Burlingame social media outlets (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, and LinkedIn) are where students, parents, alumnae and others can learn about and enjoy some of the great things happening at the school. All of our social media accounts will focus on celebrating and supporting our school, students, teachers, and alumnae, as well as sharing important news and communicating event information. 

We encourage you to share your support, connect with other supporters, and visit frequently for news and updates. We expect that remarks will be on-topic and respectful of the rights and opinions of others. 

While everyone is welcome and encouraged to comment, our first priority is to protect students, staff and community members. Comments and/or posts that do not follow this Comment Policy may be removed.

We have a zero-tolerance policy for cyberbullying and/or posts or comments that are political, racist, sexist, abusive, profane, violent, obscene, spam, contain falsehoods or are off-topic, or that libel, incite, threaten or make ad hominem attacks on students, employees, guests or other individuals. We also do not permit messages selling products or promoting commercial or other ventures. You participate at your own risk, taking personal responsibility for your comments, your username and any information provided. We reserve the right to report, restrict, and block users, as well as to report and delete comments at our discretion and without notice. Please be aware that all content and posts are bound by each social platform’s Terms of Use.

Mercy High School encourages user interaction on its social pages, but is not responsible for comments or wall postings made by visitors to the page. Posted comments do not necessarily reflect the opinions or policies of the school.

Additionally, the appearance of external links, as posted by Followers of our page or other users, does not constitute endorsement on behalf of Mercy High School. In most if not all cases, external links posted by community members will be removed.
