CELL PHONE POLICY:

 

Cell phones are not allowed to be carried by students during the school day.  

Students are required to hand in their cell phone to a staff member when they arrive to school, and they are stored in a secure location during the school day.  At the end of the school day, they are returned to the student.  If students decide to leave cell phones at home, we may ask parents to confirm this fact to school staff.  We appreciate your support with this policy.  The policy went into effect in July of 2022, and it has been a big success.  Staff and teachers have reported increased levels of student engagement both in classes and in social situations.    

If you need to reach your child while they are at school for any reason, please feel free to call the school directly at 413-592-6069, and we will relay any messages you may have, or provide an opportunity for you to speak to them.

If you have specific questions about this policy, please contact your child’s program coordinator directly.  (High School-John Rahilly,

Middle School-Kevin Foley, Elementary-Brian Garon) 

 

Thank you for your support with this matter.
