WMS policy regarding Electronic Devices

The school board policy states that electronic devices are not to be displayed or used during the school day.  There are times when students can use these items in class as part of a lesson, but otherwise they are not to be displayed or used from the time students enter the building until they are dismissed at the end of the school day.  If a a student displays or uses a cell phone, camera, iPod, ear buds, or headphones the item will be taken and turned in to the office.  Use of an electronic device includes, but is not limited, texting, talking, listening, playing games, using Internet, and checking the time.  The first time the item is taken, the parent is called and the student may pick up the item at the end of the school day.  If one of these electronic devices is taken from a student a second time, the parent will have to pick up the item from the office.  On the third and subsequent times, the student will be assigned to ISS and the parent will have to pick up the electronic device.  If a student refuses to hand over the phone to the staff member, the student risks being assigned to ISS.  Thank you for your support

Sincerely,

Piper Hendrix, Principal
