The purpose of our Facebook page is to provide an online community for parents and families at Bates Elementary.

Our goal is to share information and tips, update the community on events and programs, and showcase the achievements of students, teachers, and parents.

Community Rules


We encourage you to ask questions and share information. We request that you keep discussions focused directly concerning our school community.

We encourage posts that highlight our school's accomplishments and constructively raise issues for discussion.

When posting, please use appropriate language. Children can see our page.

Do not post about concerns, problems, or conflicts with individual teachers, administrators, students, or parents. We will immediately delete posts that in any way put down or discriminate against individuals.

Online threats will be taken seriously, and proper authorities will be immediately notified.

Do not post information commonly understood as confidential, such as student grades.

Any inflammatory statements that make allegations against individuals or organizations will be deleted.

Keep in mind what you post is public information (or, if this pertains to a Facebook group, state that it is public to all members of the group).

The PTA Facebook administrators reserve the right to delete comments and block users who are not following the rules stated above.
