Electronics Policy - High Priority, please read

The testing season is upon us, so we wanted to make sure all parents are aware of our Electronics Policy. Students are allowed to have electronics at school but the device MUST BE TURNED OFF and must remain in backpacks. Students may not use electronics on school grounds without permission from an employee of the school. Any need to contact parents can always be achieved through the office or with a teacher’s assistance. Electronic devices include, but are not limited to, cell phones, tablets, smart watches, and ipads.  Below is the Electronics Policy from the student handbook. The elementary school doesn’t have a bell system so the policy for elementary school is as stated  above, Students are allowed to have electronics at school but the devise MUST BE TURNED OFF and must remain in backpacks. Students may not use electronics on school grounds without permission from an employee of the school. This policy goes into effect when the students arrive in the morning and is in effect until they leave in the afternoon.


Students may not use any electronic devices, with the exception of devices approved by the school, after the tardy bell rings at the beginning of the school day until the dismissal bell rings at the end of school day or while under the supervision of faculty and/or staff. Students may not use said devices while engaged in any academic, club or athletic activity without permission of the faculty or staff member in charge. Cellular Telephone Policy Effective 8.01.09 Students shall not use any cellular telephones during school hours or while on approved school trips (except for times when the students are in a theme park, on the bus or in the hotel or as otherwise allowed by the administration). Any student may bring cellular telephones onto school property; however, cellular telephones shall be kept in the student’s locker or in an area designated by school officials for the storage of cellular telephones during school hours. Cellular telephones must be kept in an “off” mode during school hours. Any student who chooses to bring a cellular telephone to school shall do so at his or her own risk. School personnel shall not be responsible for damage, loss or theft of a student’s cellular telephone while on school property. Violations of this policy will result in confiscation of the cellular telephone by school officials. Any confiscated cellular telephone will only be returned to the violating student’s parent/guardian at the end of the school day and after a return of property form is signed by the student’s parent/guardian. Repeated violations of this policy may result in other disciplinary actions, including but not limited to In School Suspension, or Out of School Suspension. Students may not possess any other type of electronic device at any time. These items shall be subject to the rules of confiscation. The school shall not be responsible for any damage, theft or loss of any electronic device brought to the school property or at any school related function. The school shall not engage in any investigation for the return of lost or stolen items.
