Parents of Students in Grades 5, 6, 7 & 8
At the Faculty Meeting on Friday February 11th
the faculty unanimously decided that the Electronic Device

Beginning Monday February 14th
students in grades 5-8 will be required
to hand in their electronic devices (i-Pods, cell phones and
any other MP3 or MP4 players) at the beginning of the day.
These devices will be stored in the school office
until dismissal wherein they will be returned. Any student
in grades 5-8 that has one of the aforementioned devices
in the lunchroom, backyard etc. will be required to hand
in the device to then be picked up by the parent from Mr. Woods.

As stated on page 38 of the Parents Handbook that was
distributed at the opening meeting in September:
The use of cell phones,
camera phones or other digital media is prohibited
during the school day. Cell phones, camera phones,
or other personal electronic devices will be confiscated
if students use them during the school day without permission.
In addition, any student who uses a camera,
camera phone or other personal electronic devices in
school or in the classroom for any reason will be suspended.
Further disciplinary measures including expulsion,
will be considered depending on the nature of the camera,
