Harry Potter Weekly Agenda

No-Phone Zone for the Month of May!

posted May 1, 2019, 6:08 AM by Colleen Kepner   [ updated May 1, 2019, 6:29 AM ]

ATTENTION STUDENTS AND PARENTS!

Let's be 100% present with each other and focused on learning for this last month of school!

Starting on May 1st, I'm implementing a zero-tolerance policy for cell phones in Room 210. If I see your phone, I'll take it up and lock it in a cabinet for the rest of the school day. (You may pick it up at the end of the day, or the next morning.)

Emergency communication can go through the main office (512-414-3214). Other communication, media use, and battery charging  must happen outside of class time. Chromebooks will be available and allowed for academic purposes.

Thanks for your cooperation! I'm looking forward to making the most of this last month with you. ( :

-Ms. Kepner
