Our sincere appreciation for your support of our policy on cell phones. Initially, we just wanted students to get off their phones and learn, but we have seen many other benefits. There have been fewer discipline problems – students don’t argue about their cell phones because they know and follow the policy, which means our teachers are able to be more effective. We were expecting that. What we weren’t expecting was that we have fewer incidents of cyber-bullying, negative texts and social media drama than we have in the past. To tell the truth, that consequence has been pretty nice.
Because we want to do the very best we can for students, we are protecting class time. If students are on time and on task, they will learn more - that is good for everyone. We are doing our best to remind students to be on time to class; most tardies are avoidable. We ask that you encourage your students to show respect for their teachers and their own learning by being on time to class. Students with multiple tardies can expect their parents to be contacted; if our own children had multiple tardies, we would want to know, so we will be calling or emailing you.
Thank you from all of us in The Nest.
