Apollo Cell Phone Policy

As of late there has been some confusion about our student cell phone policy at Apollo. We are communicating this in our school newsletter this week as well, but below you will find the language that is taken directly out of our D63 Student Handbook:


...unless otherwise banned under this policy or by the building principal, all cellular phones, smartphones and other electronic devices must be kept powered-off and out-of-sight during the regular school day...


Thank you in advance for helping to remind students of this policy here at Apollo.

Morning Supervision Schedule

It is important that staff members be at their assigned locations for morning supervision by 8:15 am. If a staff member is absent, has a meeting, or is unable to do their assigned morning supervision, it is their responsibility to find a replacement. Thank you for adhering to this expectation.
