Student Personal Electronics
We recognize that cell phones and smart watches have become a common tool for communication. These personal electronics can also be a major distraction to the learning environment and are vulnerable to theft. It is district/school policy that they are not on or out during the school day. Our Student/Parent Handbook can be found on our school website, and the selection below can be found on page 13.
Cell Phone Use/Smart watches, and Student Use of School Telephone
Cell phones and/or smart watches are not to be used by students during school hours, and if brought to school must be left in the backpack and turned off. Cell phones in use by students on campus will be forwarded to the office and must be picked up by a parent/guardian. The school telephone is for business or emergency purposes only.
Please know in the event of an emergency, parents or guardians can always call the office and we will gladly get the information to your child. If students need to reach a parent during school hours, we will help them make a call from the office.
We appreciate your support with this!
