Technology Update

Due to the increased usage of devices on our network and to protect from inappropriate uses, students are no longer permitted to use personal devices during the school day, including in the hallways before school, unless it is for instructional purposes directed by the teacher.

Reminder of Policy on Toys at School

Students are not allowed to have toys at school in the morning (both cafeteria and hallways). This includes action figures, toy cars, Pokemon cards, etc.) We DO allow personal handheld devices like e-readers and/or handheld games as long as they are used individually and are not causing a disruption. Third grade does allow these toy items on Fridays at recess but they need to stay in the backpack in the morning. Thank you for your help!
