Parent Message to Students

  • If lunches or necessary school supplies are forgotten, parents may bring them to the school office and the student will be notified. Students will be given phone messages ONLY in case of an EMERGENCY. Parents should not contact students through cellphones or encourage students to contact them, as it disrupts the learning environment.

Phone Usage

  • Students may bring cellphones to school; however, they must remain turned off, and may not be used in the school building unless under the direction of a teacher or administrator. This includes before and after school, and at all extracurricular activities. 

    Exceptions to this rule include if the phone is included in a student’s Individual Education Program or if the phone is needed in an emergency that threatens the safety of students, staff, or other individuals. If a student needs to call a parent or guardian, he or she may do so in the main office with the permission of school staff.

    Failure to adhere to these guidelines may result in the phone being taken away from the student until a parent/guardian comes to school to retrieve it. Further violations of this policy may result in additional consequences.

    Taking Photos & Videos

    Taking photos or recording video of an individual without their consent is prohibited, and will result in disciplinary action. Cellphones with photographic capabilities are not allowed in locker rooms or washrooms. 

    Sexting

    Sexting is the sending of sexually explicit messages or images by cell phone, and is unacceptable behavior prohibited in school.

    Calling Parents/Guardians

    If a student needs to call a parent/guardian, they may do so in the main office with the permission of school staff. 

    Emergency Calls

    Students may use their cellphones in an emergency that threatens the safety of students, staff, or other individuals.
