Student Use of Personal Technology at Wolford Elementary
We know that on occasion parents may need to remain connected to their children during the day, therefore students are allowed to bring their cell phones and/or tablet devices to school. Students love this personal technology, but it is often very distracting in the school setting.
Additionally, recent researchappears to show that that too much screen time may affect the neuroplasticity of the developing brain. Because of this, and in an effort to help with our arrival and dismissal procedures, students will be asked to only use their devices for instructional purposes as directed by a teacher while on campus.
All devices should remain in backpacks before and after school, including during breakfast, carpool, and bus pick-up. If a child needs to check for messages from a parent or guardian they may communicate this to their teachers to work out a time to do so.
We appreciate your help in ensuring that your child is aware of this procedure.
Thank you, as always, for your support of our school!
