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.
Parents, did you know our attendance procedure has been updated?
Attending school each day is the first step to student success in school. Our state has recognized the importance of student attendance and through the state legislature revised our state law RCW 28A.225 that concerns compulsory school attendance. These revisions are specific to the role and responsibility of the district concerning absenteeism and the resources available to assist students and families to correct absentee behaviors.
Following the revised state law, revisions to EPS procedure 3122P, Attendance were made to establish and support consistent attendance practices district-wide for excusing absences, recording absences, conducting meetings and communications with parents/guardians to discuss student absences, and parameters for pre-arranged absences for vacation or travel. Beginning March 27th, the revised procedure 3122P, Attendance was implemented in all schools.
We encourage parents to read the updated attendance procedure 3122P using the hyperlinks above or by using our district policies and procedures webpage or school attendance websites to become more familiar with the new changes. The revised and updated information for procedure 3122P will be included in the printed and online Student Responsibilities and Rights handbook and provided to students and parents for the 2017-18 school year.
