Electronic Devices

At this time, there is no educational need for our students to bring in any electronic devices. We ask that if your child has a personal cell phone that they have them turned off during school hours. Students will be reminded to turn off their devices if they have them on. However, continued use after reminders could result in the cell phone or device being taken up by a teacher. You will be notified in advance if devices are allowed.

REMIND

Remind is a free, safe, and simple messaging tool that helps teachers share important updates and reminders with students & parents. Subscribe by text, email or using the Remind app. All personal information is kept private. Teachers will never see your phone number, nor will you see theirs. Visit remind.com to learn more.


To join Remind, simply Text to 81010 the correct unique class code. (ex. @abbotta)
