Games and electronic devices MAY be used in the cafeteria before school. Cell phones, iPods, iPads, etc., may be used in class IF the teacher allows these devices to be used as part of the lesson—ask if you aren’t sure. Cell phones, iPods, iPads, etc. MAY NOT be used at lunch. It is extremely difficult to supervise proper use in the cafeteria. Students must sign and abide by the acceptable use policy, and adhere to classroom rules, or their electronic device (and possibly privileges) could be taken away. Please be EXTREMELY cautious with your electronics—keep them locked up or with you. Do not leave them sitting around.
