Gizmos, Smartwatches, Etc.

Holiday cheer was aplenty for our many students with new gizmos, smartwatches, and phones. Due to this uptick in new devices, I felt the need to send out this reminder.


Smartwatches and Gizmos are still considered cell phones and must be kept in your child's backpack during the school day. While many students recognize this and keep the watches in their backpacks, many are wearing the devices around the school. This week, we have observed students texting during instructional time and receiving calls during lunch time. I do understand the need to feel connected to your child, yet this distraction will impact your child's social and academic progress.


I have reminded all of the students about the school policy in the handbook and I have included it below for your information.


Electronics (i.e. DS games, iPod, iTouch, cellular phones)

Electronics must be turned off during school hours and remain in backpacks at all times. If a child is observed using any electronics at recess, during morning line up or lunch the item will be taken and returned the next afternoon or it may be picked up by a parent after school. The school is not responsible for lost, broken or stolen items.

UNICEF

As a result of the efforts of our students, $2562.06 was collected for UNICEF. As always, thank you for your kind assistance.
