Photographing of Students
Throughout the year, the Freeport Area School District shares information with the public through news releases, slide presentations, videotaping, etc., or through publications such as The Freeporter. District publications and promotional material (newsletters, website, calendar, etc.) and local newspapers may contain pictures of students from the various schools in the district. If parents DO NOT wish to have their child’s photograph used in any publication or in the media, please submit a written request stating so, to: Freeport Area School District, School and Student Events Coordinator, PO Drawer C, Freeport, PA 16229. Parents need to submit a written request each school year. Once received, the request will be kept on file for the remainder of the school year in the school office.
