New cell phone policy
The use of cell phones in the classroom can distract students from instruction, yet can be important to have accessible in case of emergency. With this in mind, the district has adopted a new policy 3246 and procedure 3246P which prohibits cell phone use in the classroom while still providing access for students in case of emergency.
Elementary school students who choose to bring cell phones to school may only use them before or after the school day. During the school day, they must be powered off and stored (e.g., in the student’s backpack, locker, other district provided storage). There will be storage in the classroom so, in the event of an emergency, the cell phones will be accessible without leaving the classroom.

Recognizing the importance of school attendance, the state legislature revised our state law, RCW 28A.225, on compulsory school attendance. Beginning March 27, 2017, the revised attendance procedures were implemented in all schools to have consistent attendance practices across the state.
