In the St. Nicholas Catholic School Family Handbook 2017-2018 on page 25, it states:

Cell Phones and Electronic Devices:

All student cell phones and electronic devices will remain off and secured in a backpack from 7:50-3:00.  Students may not use cell phones during school hours.

If a student has his/her cell phone or electronic device out during school hours for a non-emergency, it will be kept in the school office for a parent to pick up.

Since Christmas, we have had a problem with the new watches that are also cell phones.  Since by our definition "a watch phone is the same as a cell phone", we will be changing the wording of our cell phone policy as per the following:

Cell Phones and Electronic Devices:

All student cell phones, watch phones, and electronic communication devices will remain off and secured in a backpack from 7:50-3:00 and while students are in Aftercare. Students may not use electronic communication devices during school hours or while they are in Aftercare.  Emergency contact will be handled through the school office.

If a student has his/her cell phone, watch phone, or electronic communication device out during school hours or in Aftercare, it will be kept in the school office for a parent to pick up.

These changes are in Bold lettering and will take place immediately. Please help us by informing your student the consequences of using an electronic communication device at school.
