This is just a reminder that if your child received a touchscreen smart watch/Apple Watch, these need to remain at home due to the distraction they create in the classroom. The following policy applies to these watches and any similar type of technology that allows messaging/calling and or photo/video recording.
CCS provides access to technology for direct educational purposes only. This includes supervised internet, email and computer access. Under no circumstances are personal computers, cell phones, MP3 players, or any other electronic devices permitted to be handled, displayed, or used without written permission of a school official. In the case where authorization has been permitted, students will only be allowed to use the device under close monitoring by the approving authority. This policy will be strictly enforced.
