Electronics at School
No Cell Phones or Other Electronics at School


Because cell phones are disruptive to learning, students may not use them at school. Cell phones that are turned off, may be stored in a student's backpack for use after school. This includes iPods, MP3 players, and handheld games such as Gameboy and DS. Electronic items will be confiscated and parents will be called to pick them up in the office.


Pets


For the safety of our students and your pets, please do not bring pets onto school property. If you bring the family dog with you to pick up your son or daughter, please keep him/her in the car. For student safety, it is important that we follow this new guideline. We love pets as well, but we cannot risk student safety at any time. Thanks for your understanding and support.
