BYOD Reminders

Our students have been doing a great job this year with the BYOD policies. As a reminder, student devices need to be turned off and put away during the instructional day, unless a teacher has requested them for instructional purposes. If you need to get a message to your student, please contact the front office. We kindly ask that you please not text your student during the day.
