CELL PHONES AT VENTURE HEIGHTS –
K-4 Cell Phone Usage: Due to the abundance of the technology that is provided at school, there is no need to send a device to school. These devices are only brought so kids can listen to music or play games neither of which are a necessity in the school day. If emergencies arise, parents can always get in touch with their children by simply phoning the office. Some exceptions for individual classroom teachers may be made in coordination with the school administration.
Grade 5-8 Cell Phone Usage : Due to the abundance of the technology that is provided at school, there is no need to send a device to school. If emergencies arise, parents can always get in touch with their children by simply phoning the office. Additionally, all classrooms now have a telephone, so connecting with students will be even more efficient. Some exceptions for individual classroom teachers may be made in coordination with the school administration.
Cell phone use will not be permitted inside the school building during school hours. Students who have cell phones in classrooms or in the hallways will have them taken away and given to the homeroom teacher. Phones can be retrieved at the end of the day. Third time offenders will be dealt with by the school administration.
Dates and Times of Practices/Games are Subject to Change
