Yearbook Pictures For Clubs / Organizations

A photographer will be at Collins on Wednesday to take pictures of our groups. We will be announcing the groups throughout the day. Please remind your children to wear any uniform or club gear they may have.

Cell Phones / Smart Watches

It's time to remind families that cell phones and ECD's (smart watches, etc) are not permitted at the elementary school level, per the UCS Board of Education Policy. Recently we have had incidents involving students wearing or bringing these items to school and causing a problem with their use.

Students are to keep these items at home. If you would like approval for your child to carry a cell phone (for use after school while walking home, for example) please contact their teacher who can make an allowance for such items to be: 1.) stored out of sight in backpack, and 2.) turned OFF/powered down (not just switched to silent).

Special note regarding ‘Smart’ watches: many of the newer devices have features that provide access to the internet, phone calling or texting, and picture-taking capabilities. It is almost impossible to monitor each accessory on each student’s wrist therefore devices of this sort will not be permitted to be worn at school.

If cell phones or smart watches are seen or heard in the classroom, teachers will collect the item and send it to the office for retrieval by a parent. Upon a second offense, suspension time may be issued.

fun run is coming!
