Cell phone use in after school YS program
Parents, for your child’s cyber safety and due to an increase of students inappropriately texting after school, all children staying in the YS after school program will be asked to maintain the same phone use rules as implemented during instructional time while on campus. Students will not be permitted to watch videos, text, play games, etc. Phones will need to be safely put away. When retrieving your children, please physically come on to campus and make contact with the afterschool coach, when picking up your children.
That’s it for this week’s news from school. Have a tigerrific evening.
