Stay Connected Through Social Media

At St. Thomas Aquinas, we value open communication and want to keep you up-to-date on what’s happening in our school. In addition to our school website, you can also stay connected through our social media accounts.

Our Facebook, Twitter and YouTube channels provide information on upcoming events, helpful resources, programs and services and many of the great things happening at STA. We invite you to join these conversations and stay connected with our Catholic community!

To join the conversation, please ‘follow’ us on Twitter and ‘like’ us on Facebook.

Our Social Media Accounts:

Social Media Guidelines

The Board’s and school’s social media guidelines are applicable to all of the social media accounts listed above. Any other account, third-party page or Twitter handle, using a similar name or seemingly related to the Board or School, should not be confused with our official accounts. Although the school is open to sharing relevant content created by other users on social media sites, we do not endorse third party users.

Hours of Availability

Our school’s social media accounts are run and monitored by the Administration and teachers at STA, primarily during the hours of 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. from Monday to Friday. From time to time, content may be posted outside of these working hours. All messages and mentions directed towards the school after regular business hours will be reviewed on the next school day.

Following

The School follows members of our Halton community, as well as related organizations and community partners. Although the school may ‘like’ others on Facebook and ‘follow’ others on Twitter, this does not imply endorsement.

Retweeting and Sharing Content

We will retweet and share content from other accounts that may provide useful information. Although we cannot respond to all questions, related posts, and inquiries, we will retweet and respond to as much relevant content as we can.

Commenting and Posting Guidelines

We encourage you to participate and add value to all online conversations. This includes offering feedback, asking questions and inquiring about new programs and services. As much as we welcome your feedback and opinions, please be respectful and keep your comments/posts appropriate. If you are asking a specific question related to your own child, please send a message to our administration team or individual teacher so that we can further assist you, while protecting your privacy and the privacy of others.

Please be advised that our School has the right to remove and/or report any of the following:

  • Comments/posts that do not comply with the Halton Catholic District School Board’s or the St. Thomas Aquinas mission, vision, and values

  • Comments/posts that are derogatory, abusive, demeaning, slanderous, hateful, discriminatory and/or racist or in any way insinuate cyber bullying
