Reminder: Phones, smartwatches should be off and out of sight at school

Students have been receiving or sending messages from family members and friends during the school day. These messages disrupt the learning environment for your child, their classmates, and the teacher. If you need to reach your child during the day, please contact the main office.

Cell phones, smartwatches, and other electronic devices must be kept out of sight in a backpack, purse, or locker during the school day. If a student violates these rules, the device will be confiscated and there may be disciplinary action. 

Please have a conversation at home about the appropriate use of technology at school and why it is important that all students are able to focus on their learning.

More information is available on page 44 of the Student/Parent Handbook, CCSD 89 Board of Education Policy 7:192 – Student Use of Mobile Telecommunication Devices, and Board Regulation 7:192-R.
