Student Cell Phone Policy
Students will be allowed to use their phones before school, during snack and lunch, and after school. At ALL other times, students MUST have their phones in their backpacks and on silent mode. If a student is using their phone during class, their teacher will take away their phone for the remainder of the class time and will return it at the end of class. If the teacher has to take away the phone more than 3 times, the student will have their phone taken away for the rest of the day. Students are not allowed to take pictures or videos of other students or staff members without their permission. Students must also get permission before they post any pictures or videos of others.
This year TREE will allow students to choose between their personal laptop device and a TREE issued Chromebook. If a student elects to bring their own personal device, they are expected to bring it to school every day.
Students who elect not to bring a personal computer from home will be assigned a school issued Chromebook. If a student is assigned a school issued Chromebook for the year, they may bring it home to complete homework assignments.
Students who have elected to bring a personal computer from home, but have forgotten it, are allowed to check out a Chromebook to use for the day from our Operations Manager or Administrative Assistant in the Front Office. In this case, students will return the Chromebook to whomever lent them the device in order to ensure that it has not been taken.
Any damage to the Chromebook that compromises the Chromebook’s practical use, or the loss of a Chromebook, will result in the family having to purchase a new Chromebook through TREE. The replacement fee is $350, due immediately.
