Social Media Rules of Engagement
The purpose of Silsbee ISD social media pages is to inform, engage, and inspire our students, parents, staff members, and the community as a whole. Through these pages, Silsbee ISD will also be sharing the many accomplishments and achievements of our students and staff members, and encourage interaction from the community.
These pages are managed by Silsbee ISD Communications Department, which is not responsible for comments made by visitors. Silsbee ISD also reserves the right to delete any comments at the administrators’ discretion.
While Silsbee ISD will also use these pages to communicate important information (including weather related school closures) to parents and the community, the pages are not intended to replace Silsbee ISD normal emergency notifications or parent messages.
If you have an immediate concern, please do not post a comment, or send a message to the page administrator, rather, contact the administration office at 409-980-7800.
