As part of our Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program, we recognize there is a need to educate your child about the safe and responsible use of technology. School counselors will be presenting a classroom lesson to 6th grade students and hosting team assemblies for 7th and 8th grade students.
6th grade students will participate in a classroom lesson during the month of October. 6th graders will also have four follow-up lessons presented in morning advisory. Upon completion of the classroom lesson, four follow-up lessons and a signed BYOD form by their parent/guardian, a student may receive their BYOD license and will be permitted to use their devices in school.

09/18 Sapphire team, 09/21 Opal team and 09/24 Ruby team
