Digital Citizenship

Cell Phones 

Cell phones are to be turned off and stored in student lockers during class instruction. Teachers may give permission for students to use cell phones as a digital device when the use of the device supports and or enhances learning. Cell phones will be returned to lockers after use. Use of cell phones or personal listening devices for classwork requires permission from the sponsoring teacher.

Computer Usage Guidelines

These guidelines are to be followed for all computers in the school.  All students from Kindergarten to Grade 12 in the CBE  receive a school email account, which is accessible from both school and home.

​​​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.​​​
