Reminder - Personal Electronic Devices

From the Elementary Handbook (p. 38):

For safety purposes, the district permits students to possess personal mobile telephones; however, these devices must remain turned off during the instructional day unless they are being used for approved instructional purposes.


If a student uses a telecommunication device without authorization during the school day, the device will be confiscated. The student or parent may pick up the confiscated telecommunications device from the front office.


MP3 players, video or audio recorders, DVD players, cameras, games, e-readers, or other electronic devices at school are not allowed without prior permission.


Telecommunication devices include but are not limited to cell phones and smart watches.


For additional information, you may view board policy FNCE Legal and FNCE Local.

The Gifted and Talented Program at all levels is designed to provide opportunities to meet unique social, emotional, and intellectual needs of gifted and talented students. Referrals for the Gifted and Talented Program may be made by parents, teachers, students, counselors, or community members. Students may be referred each year, but prior testing data may be considered valid for 2 years.

The referral window for grades 1-5 will be accepted from March 18, 2019 through March 29, 2019, with testing being conducted in April and May. Parents of 1st-5th grade students identified as Gifted and Talented will be notified in writing by May 30, 2019 in the final report card.
