Cell phones and other personal electronic devices are not to be used during the school day from 7:57 a.m. to 2:59 p.m. Recognizing the fact that students may need these devices with them at school because of after school activities, work, etc., these devices will be permitted in the building ONLY if turned off and stored in your locker during school hours. Parents should know that students have access to landline phones throughout the school day. Additionally, parents may contact the school at 346-9247 to leave a message for their child.

Consequences for violations include:

  • First offense: Phone taken away and retrieved by the student at the end of the school day.

Homework Help/Tutoring: We have homework help EVERYDAY after school from 3-4:30! Your child can go anytime to get help in any classes or just work on homework/study after school! Monday-Thursday and 3-4:00 on Fridays. (Mrs. Boyle’s and Mrs. Holland's Room)

Homework Help Assigned by Teacher: When a student is failing a class or missing 3 or more assignments, they will be referred to homework detention/homework help/tutoring for one hour from 3-4 pm the following day they are assigned.

Please try to get at least 9 hours of sleep every night. Keeping your cell phone out of the bedroom and turning off TVs and video games early on school nights is important for your ability to stay awake and pay attention in class. This will greatly affect your success in school. I am looking forward to having you in class!
