Hi CynthiaI work for a non-profit development center and our policy is that no personal phones are allowed out in the classrooms. We have iPads to take pictures and use an app called Kaymbu to connect and share photos with parents. Our playground is not connected to our classrooms and is in a different part of the building so we do bring our personal phones in case of emergency when we leave the classroom. As far as pictures on personal phones, we have been instructed that if the iPad isn't working we may take photos with our phones as long as we send them to our classroom email and delete them from our phones as soon as possible. We are never allowed to post pictures of kid's faces on any websites or social media. I hope this was helpful!

Photo Usage Level
I grant all rights to use my child's photos in all school projects, advertising, and promotion, including print and Internet.
I grant limited rights to use my child's photos only in class-related activities like bulletin boards, class activities, class photo books, and art projects. This excludes advertising, promotion and publically available websites.
I do not want any photos of my child taken and subsequently used in any manner. However, I understand that Campbell Parents' Participation Preschool cannot guarantee under any circumstances that other parents will not take and publish photos without your or the school's knowledge.
Secure Access to Photos (how the photos will be stored and shared)
I want my child's photos to be stored in electronic form on a password protected website (like Shutterfly) where everyone in the class has the password and the ability to share photos.
I want my child's photos to be stored in a folder on the class coordinator's computer for use in class-related activities such as the yearbook, and not be uploaded to a photo-sharing website. I understand that my child could appear in group photos or in the background of photos on the class photo-sharing website, but those photos will not be tagged or captioned with my child's name.
