Personal Digital Devices
Students are generally advised not to bring valuable personal items from home, such as cell phones and hand-held computer games. However, increasingly teachers are encouraging children to BYOD (bring your own device) with parent permission and under teacher supervision for educational purposes. In such cases, Responsible Use Agreement Contracts must be signed by students and parents. Except where teacher permission has been given, students are not permitted to use digital devices in the halls of the school, at recess or lunch, or inside or outside the school during school hours. Therefore only unsanctioned use of an electronic device will result in temporary loss of that device.
Parents need to be aware that in order to preserve the safety, culture and climate of the school the administrators have the right to access lockers, back packs and information stored on electronic devices.
