Photo Opt-Out Form
Parents must complete the opt-out form for photographs, audio and video for Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools for the 2014-15school year. The school system and its schools use photographs and audio, digital, video and other recordings of students to publicize school activities in a variety of outlets, such as school newsletters, brochures, yearbooks and annuals; Cable Channel 2; and the WS/FCS website and school websites. Your child may also appear in photographs, audio recordings or video recordings that appear in local media outlets, such as newspapers, television news and their affiliated websites.
