Our electronics policy has been updated to include smartwatches as many have the same capabilities as cell phones. Garmins/Fitbits and other watches that are electronic devices need to be used as watches only during school hours. Students will continue to be able to call home if necessary using the front office phone. Caregivers are encouraged to call the school office when needed.
Students who need electronic devices for medical reasons can contact the school.
