Pokemon Cards, Cell Phones, Personal Electronic Deices, & other Personal Items
Students are kindly reminded not to bring their toys, trading cards, electronic games (Pokémon, etc.). These items can be a distraction to students during class when they are kept in their pockets and desks. Students also misplace, lose or trade items, and then are left feeling disappointed. Please note that the school will not be responsible if these items are lost or stolen. Unfortunately, such incidents will not be investigated.
Students are also strongly encouraged not to bring in iPod’s, cell phones, or Personal Electronic Devices to school. Should students bring these items to school with parent permission, they are to remain powered off and in their backpack. With the teacher’s permission, an electronic device may be used for educational purposes and/or at an appropriate time. All communication between students and parents regarding illnesses or pick-up arrangements must go through the office during the school day. It is highly recommended that students not take photos of others on school property due to the limitations outlined in the Protection of Privacy Act. Unfortunately, at times, resulting inappropriate use of such photos may disrupt the educational environment and could lead to serious consequences. Exceptions may be made if photos are taken under teacher supervision and for educational purposes only. Thank you for your cooperation in this important matter.
