Middle Level and High School Parent Notice

Beginning on Monday, January 21st, I am requiring that all staff incorporate the following phone and technology policy in every class throughout the day, for the remainder of the school year. We are losing too much instructional time when teachers are dealing with student phone issues. Students will have access to check phone messages between classes and over lunch if they are using them respectfully.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation and support of our educational system.

Sincerely
Mr. Lechtenberg

Message sent to all staff:

I am requiring that ALL staff require ALL ML/HS students to put their phones and head phones etc. in the phone pockets in your room when they enter the room and leave them there until they are leaving class. Computer usage should also be used for educational purposes only. This is based on phone issues by a few of our students and the disrespect many of them show for staff when you request their phones. These will be my expectations for staff and students for the remainder of the year. They will simply need to get messages etc. between classes and over lunch. As the adults in the room this will, however, also require that you model the behavior we are expecting in regard to cell phone usage, so please refrain from using your phone during class time as well. Thank you for your cooperation and support in this effort to increase instructional efficiency, and increasing student’s opportunities to learn.
