What Are The Cons Of Setting Up A Facebook Group For My Son’s Elementary School?

I want to set up a Facebook group for the school to keep parents informed. I am a Facebook user myself and I like the way the information gets distributed, and the way members can interact. Are there any down sides? If your K-5 elementary has a Facebook, will you post the link so I can see how you are using it?

    people always like to stay in the loop, especially parents. anything like this would be a great idea! my mom would have loved it when i was in elementary school, cuz those kids usually forget things that are going on. it’s really the best way to keep parents informed.

    The downside to Facebook is what makes it great – everyone can see it (Unless you specifically set up the account or group to restrict who can or cannot see it).
    I would say that the downside to a group on Facebook for a school of young children (I’m not up to date on the American schooling system, so I assume elementary is the title given to young children) is that people who do access it might be using it for other purposes – in short, don’t post anything of a sensitive nature – especially when children are involved.
    You may want to set up a system in your school where the parents have to submit their name and you send them the invite or friend request.
