Digital Citizenship

Personal Computing Devices at School

Students in the 21st century have access to a wider variety of electronic communication and entertainment devices than ever before. Haultain Memorial School permits students to bring items such as cellular phones, and other personal computing devices to school with some provisions. The school will not assume responsibility for lost, damaged or stolen property.

Cell phones are an increasingly popular accessory for students and a comfort for parents. Safety and privacy concerns require that cell phones be turned off during school hours and that they be kept inside a backpack unless, in consultation with the teacher, the student is using the device for a specific learning purpose. Cell phones and digital devices are not to be used at lunch time or recess as this is time best spent socializing with peers and getting physical activity.

The initial decision to allow a student to bring these devices to school rest with the parent and the school will assume the parents have granted permission to students who have devices at school.

Attached are our Digital Citizenship Agreements for Div 1 and Div 2. These agreements are discussed in class and sent home at the beginning of the year for families to use as a conversation guide with your children.

​​​Digital Citizenship at the CBE

Digital citizenship is about using technology and participating in digital environments. It is key to helping our students learn to use available technology responsibly in the classroom and beyond. Our school has a Digital Citizenship Plan that is updated annually, addressing how we work to build a community where we live and work together as digital citizens.

Visit the CBE website to learn more about how we support students to develop online safety skills and be good digital citizens.​​​
