Symmes Elementary School
Friday, May 12, 2017
We have been having some issues with children bringing fidget spinners to school. The spinners are highly distracting to students and those around them. Children are trading them, loosing them and spinning them instead of doing their work. We would like to ask that the children please keep these at home. If a student has one, it will be taken from them and turned into the office. A parent must come to the school office to retrive it. This also applies to our Champions program and all school busses. Thank you for your cooperation.
