ELECTRONIC DEVICES & “BYOD”

Students are reminded that on the bus and before school the use of electronic devices is limited to texting, playing games, and listening to music only with the use of headphones. Once the school day begins electronic devices and headphones must be out of sight and completely turned off.  If the device is seen or heard during the school day, the item may be confiscated, and a parent may be contacted to pick up the device. If individual teachers allow students to use devices for an instructional purpose, then students may use their electronic device within the classroom.

Devices are permitted to be used by students during their lunch period in the cafeteria. We are working to create a safe and uninterrupted learning environment for our students.Thank you for your support of our policy. 

Please refer to FCPS' Student Rights and Responsibilities for more information about using devices in schools.
