Electronics and Cell Phone Policies
In order to create a positive learning environment for all students, any personal electronic devices may not be used on campus until 3:30 p.m. This includes iPads, MP3 players, phones or other hand held music or gaming devices. If a student brings one of these types of devices to school, it may be confiscated and held until a parent comes to school to get it.
At JME we understand that many parents choose to have their students carry a cell phone for communication purposes in the event of emergencies or changes in plans. However, in order to not disrupt the school day any student bringing a cell phone to school must keep it turned off and out of sight during school hours. If a student is seen with a cell phone during school hours they will be given a reminder of the school policy, and/or it may be taken away and kept in the office until the end of the day or until a parent/guardian of the student comes to school to pick it up.
During school hours, if a parent/guardian needs to get a message to their student, they are welcome to call the office at 425.936.2640 and the message will be delivered to the student as soon as possible and in a manner that will not disrupt learning. Students are permitted to use their cell phones after dismissal at 3:30 p.m.
