The use of personal devices in our school will be at the discretion of our staff and our students will be asked to respect the expectations laid out by their teachers. If a student chooses not to comply with these classroom expectations this can result in personal devices being confiscated and placed in the school vault for parents to come pick up. It is our intention to have all students have access to their own devices or school technology resources regularly.
