Chromebooks, Devices, and Social Media Awareness

Attention parents/guardians


We are very blessed to provide every student with a chromebook that can be used at school and home. We can easily monitor chromebook violations at school, but not while students are home. We are seeing many students on their Chromebooks late at night and early in the morning. In many of these cases students are on inappropriate sites, or playing online games. We ask that you help your student to be prepared for learning each day and practice good digital citizenship by monitoring their chromebook use at home.


Social Media is another area that continues to be a concern. Tiktok, Snapchat, Facebook, Instagram, and many other platforms are not age appropriate for Middle School Students. Here at school we are daily resolving conflict and bullying issues that stem from students communicating on these platforms. While students aren't allowed on these sites, or even able to access their cellular devices at school, many are using them at home. Please monitor your students device. CMSN counselors and administration are happy to help you with ways to monitor this from home.

Cell Phone Policy

Cell phones are not allowed to be used by students on campus. They are to be turned off in their backpacks during the school day. This includes mornings in the courtyard/gym and afternoons during dismissal. It is very challenging to enforce this when parents are often who students are texting with during the school day. The handbook policy is below.


Elementary Schools & Middle Schools: Students may bring cell phones, smart watches, and other electronic devices, but must leave them turned off (other than pre-approved medical exceptions) and put out of sight from the time the student arrives on campus until the student leaves campus.


All Schools-The use of cell phones or other electronic devices to photograph, video, or audio record other students or employees is forbidden and could result in consequences up to and including expulsion from school. The exception to this would be when photographs or videos are being made by students for instructional purposes by permission of and under the supervision of the student’s teacher. Students violating this policy will be subject to having their device confiscated in addition to other consequences up to and including suspension or expulsion. Students who use school issued cell phones and/or computers for non-school purposes, except as permitted by this policy shall be subject to discipline, up to and including suspension or expulsion.

How to keep up When Your Child is Quarantined

We know that being quarantined is tough! Getting work done from home is never easy. However, we want you to know the resources available to you and your child.


Utilize Google Classroom


  • Every assignment is posted in Google Classroom.
  • Every student logs into this program daily from school so they know their passwords.
  • You as the parent can access their Google Classroom using your child's login.
  • If your child is saying they don't know their password please contact their teacher or reach out to our registrar. We have that information for you!
  • Don't assume that when a student submits an assignment in Google Classroom that they completed it. Always open the submission and check their work.



Check HAC


  • Grades are posted in HAC.
  • This is where parents can go to see grades.
  • Teachers update grades weekly.
  • If you need help getting into HAC please contact our registrar
