At a glance: 

  1. Mobile phones/smartwatches should be "off and away" during all class times in learning communities. If any device is seen or heard in class, the student will be asked to take their mobile phone/Smartwatch to the office. This will include devices tucked in clothing, in bags, or in binders.

  2. Delivered devices will be returned to students at the end of the day in the first and second instances. Should there be a third occurrence, a call will be made home requiring a parent/guardian to collect the child's device.

  3. Students are still able to use their devices prior to school, during lunch, during breaks and after school. We would appreciate it if you would contact your child during these times.
