The Red 'n' Green


The purpose of The Red ‘n’ Green is to be an open public forum for our staff, students and readers. We want to create close ties between the administration, faculty, students and the Berlin community. Our policies are as follows:

Conflict of Interest: Reporters will avoid writing about topics in which they have a personal stake. Reporters will strive for objectivity and fairness in their coverage of topics.

Letter to the Editor: The Red ‘n’ Green will accept only signed letters to the editor, although names will be withheld from print upon request. Any student, faculty, staff, administrator, or community member is allowed to submit letters to the editor. We reserve the right to return letters for corrections before publishing. The staff will not print any material that is libelous, obscene, or malicious as that speech is not protected by the First Amendment. 

Editorial: Editorials are unsigned as they reflect the majority opinion of the staff. Editorial topics will be covered in a fair manner. However, controversial topics will be covered.

Advertising: The Red ‘n’ Green accepts ads and reserves the right to edit ads for content or clarity. The staff may refuse to publish any ad for reasons such as, but not limited to: unprotected speech: obscene, libelous, or otherwise objectionable materials, such as ethnic slurs or profanities; advertising materials which are illegal for minors.

Death of Staff Member or Student: Upon the death of a staff member or student, and with the permission of the family, The Red ‘n’ Green will collect fond memories from the school community and compile them in a memorial to be published on the Red ‘n’ Green website and/or in print.
