At School Device Expectations

We understand many families want their students to have cell phones for emergencies, therefore, we want to make sure all families are aware of our school policy regarding devices. 

  • Students bring devices to school at their own risk.
  • Devices that are capable of calling, taking photos, texting, and playing games/music (phones and smart watches) are not permitted to be used during school hours from 8:40am to 3:25pm. Devices may be used on school property outside of the listed school hours.
  • Once students enters the building for the school day devices must be turned off and kept in their backpacks or lockers.
  • Staff will confiscate all such devices if students use them during the school day on school property and the student is responsible to retrieve them at the end of the day.
  • If students need to contact parents they must first check in with their teacher and may be permitted to go to the office to contact their family for emergency purposes only. 
  • Fitbits/pedometers are approved as long as they don’t have calling, texting, etc. capabilities.
