Electronic Devices Policy- i-Phone Watches and Gizmos

Dear Meadows Families,

As we begin the new school year, we would like to remind you of our District-wide policy with regard to electronic devices. We acknowledge that students have cell phones and some of our students have moved into wearing Smartwatches, Gizmos and VTech watches as well. Students are certainly able to wear these devices to and from school, but not while on campus during school hours. If said device is used as a tracking device for safety reasons before and after school for your child, please remind your students to put this device on at dismissal as a part of his/her routine.

In exclusion of purposes for supporting a student with an IEP in place, wearable electronic devices are not allowed during the school day as it mirrors the idea of a cell phone and can be a listening and/or recording device, which is not allowed. Education code section 51512 prohibits the use by any person, including a pupil, of any electronic listening device in any elementary or secondary school classroom. Our district handbook specifically states that we will regulate the use of such devices during the school day (pages 19-20).

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.

APEX Fundraiser Starts on November 18th

Dear Parents,

We are so excited to announce that our school will be participating in an Apex Leadership Co event this Fall as our major fundraiser! The Apex program will be with our students from November 18th-December 6th as we raise much needed funds to help our school. Please look in your child's folder and for e-mails that will be sent to you as the fun run gets nearer.

Apex is an interactive leadership program that helps schools all over the country raise money, while promoting leadership, good character and fitness. This year’s theme is Apex GAME ON! Students will join the Apex team on an exciting journey as they learn the habits needed to be a game changing leader.

During the Apex program, students are challenged to get pledges for the fitness moves they will complete on event day to help our school. Students will dance/workout for 30 minutes and will complete 30-36 fitness moves. The maximum number of moves is 36. Through Apex’s top-notch online pledging system, sponsors can pledge $1, $2, $5/move, or any other amount for students and can pledge from anywhere in the world!

Thank you again for your continued support of Meadows Elementary. We are excited to continue this journey with you!

Principal of Meadows, Dr. Juliet Fine
