Student Handbook Reminders
Cell phone use for students in grades 5 – 8 is for safety purposes only. For that reason, students are permitted to have their cell phones out and available for use prior to the start of the school day and after the school day ends. From 8:50 am – 3:30 pm, students may not have their cell phones out (unless they have the express permission from their teacher). This also includes lunch and advisory times.
In addition, students may not take pictures or video unless under supervision by a teacher, or post work or images from school onto their personal social network accounts.
Laptop use in the classroom during class time is at the discretion of the classroom teacher.

Our first round of Friday Explorations will be this Friday! Please encourage your child to check their classes so they know where to go. They can do this by logging into Grades and Attendance on the Family Portal, and selecting "Friday Schedule" from the side navigation.
You also can email your questions or make appointments. We do our best to reply to your email queries within 48 hours during our regular weekday business hours. If you need immediate assistance, call or visit our counseling office.
