New this year, the school board has adopted the following policy:

Grades 6 through 8 – Students in grades 6 through 8 are encouraged to leave their wireless communication devices (WCD) at home. Students who bring WCDs to school must ensure that they remain on silent mode and completely out of view for the entire school day except for the student’s lunch period or as expressly authorized by the classroom teacher for a specific instructional activity. Classroom teachers may also provide, and student may utilize, a cell phone storage area in their classroom. WCDs include cell phones, personal devices, earbuds, etc.
