Student Notification System / Copyright Policy

 

 

 

Student Notification System
Students have the option of submitting their cell phone numbers to the office for text notification of school cancellations, events, and emergencies. The school will input students numbers into its Simple Messaging System for this purpose. For snow or bad weather cancellations, students should expect a text by 6:45 am that morning.

Copyright Policy
Downloading or distributing unauthorized copyrighted content is a violation of federal law, and therefore a violation of campus policy. Infractions on campus will be reviewed and the appropriate penalty will be determined.

Legal Sources
There are many legal sources of content online. P2PAlternatives.comhosts a list of the over 30 popular sites that offer music, video, software and texts legally.

Combating Violations
We use DNS for EDU a software/hardware solution that helps actively prevent illegal content from being accessed on campus.
