Toys, cell phones and electronics of any kind are not permitted at school unless approved in advance by a teacher for a specific learning occasion. This is to avoid the inevitable disagreements, breakage and loss. Even if the object is brought for an approved lesson, the school and school staff bear no responsibility for lost or stolen personal property. If the child is using the object in school (other than during the approved lesson) or in the waiting room, it will be taken away. Trading cards, silly bandz, electronic games, and guns and knives of any kind (even if they’re toys: cap, water, plastic or other) are not allowed at school at any time (including before and after school). Students may use school telephones only for emergencies.
