Cell phones and ipads at school

posted May 3, 2017, 3:54 PM by Kelda Logan
There has been an increase of children bringing their phones or ipads to school and this is causing problems for our staff here.  Please note the following guidelines for Fernwood:
  • We do not want children to bring their devices to school
  • We want children to play and run at recess, rather than look at their screens
  • It's difficult for us to monitor how personal devices are used on the playground 
  • It's difficult for us to keep devices safe from breakage or theft
  • If you would like to contact your child during school hours, please call Leah in the office and we will pass on a message
  • If you need to be in touch with your child after school, they are permitted to turn on their devices on the bus only
Your help in this matter would be most appreciated.  If you have questions, please feel free to contact Kelda: klogan@sd64.bc.ca
