To help maintain a distraction-free, safe and caring learning environment, JQ families are asked not to send children to school with cell phones or other electronic devices.
During the school day, and any time students are in the care of school staff, including field trips and before and after school extracurricular activities, communication between students and families must go through the office or the staff member in charge.
Any electronic device used by students during the school day, including before and after school, recess and lunch, and during field trips and extracurricular activities may only be with teacher or staff permission and direct supervision.
Families that choose to send children to school with a cell phone or other electronic device in case of emergencies during the trip to and from school must ensure their child understands the phone or device may only be used at school with teacher or staff permission and direct supervision. Any personal electronic devices students bring to school must be turned off or put on silent mode and stored in their school bag for the duration of the school day, including before and after school, and during any school sponsored activities.
Students unable to abide by the policy described above will have the phone or device confiscated and turned in to the office. A parent or guardian will be asked to come retrieve the phone or device and be reminded of the policy.
Thank you for helping to ensure a distraction-free, safe and caring learning environment for our students and staff.
