Personal Devices (Phones, Tablets and Computers)
At Nicomekl Elementary we understand that personal devices such as smart phones, tablets and mini-computers can be effective in teaching and learning.
As we do require the use of these devices to be supervised by an adult we respectfully request the following:
1.Devices are NOT permitted to be used at school unless teachers are guiding the lesson. They are not to be outside at recess/lunch or in the hallways.
2. If students come to school with a device then it must be left unseen in their backpack or, alternatively it may be stored away in the class by the teacher.
3. We recognize that at the end of the day that you may want your child to have a phone for communication, but during school hours we ask that students also connect with staff if family need to be contacted for lunch, change of clothing etc..
We want to avoid the possibility of devices going missing, getting damaged, being a distraction or being a cause for conflict.
We appreciate your support in reminding your child if they do bring a device to school.
