At the beginning of the year I sent out permission/release of image forms. Every single one of my Firsties' parents sent them back approved, *except* one. I just crop/edit her out of photos.
I set this up like a business page and have my parents "Like" my page. Then they can see all of the updates I post. I post pictures from my iPad and I have even uploaded a few videos. This is awesome for the parents who are wondering what their little ones are up to all day long. One posting even clarified the homework that night for a couple of parents.
In this fast paced world, I love that I can use the tools for good
The best part is after 30 "Likes" you can see how often your page is being visited. Parents can comment and message me. I have had no issues yet and I am monitoring the page very closely for safety.
