To make our school safer, the district has changed how parents check in and out of school. As you come into our school the following procedures will be required. Daily – All doors will be locked or monitored. All adults who are in the building after the late bell, must have checked into the office, and be wearing a badge. Badges are to be issued to visitors only after they have shown ID and checked into the system. Field Trips – Volunteers attending a field trip are expected to check in the system, show ID, and be issued a badge as if they were volunteering in the classroom. Events/assemblies – In advance of a school-day function, the school will send “tickets” home that parents may use to enter the school. Parents may give additional tickets to grandparents or other family members who will be attending the event. Upon arrival, visitors need to show picture ID along with their tickets. Tickets will be collected at the door and adults will be issued a badge granting access to the location of the activity only. Adults who forget their tickets, want to stay beyond the time of the activity, or need to visit another area of the school, will use the daily protocol to enter. We appreciate your patience with the new changes, as we want to keep everyone that enters this school safe.
Technology/Electronic Device Policy
Kay’s Creek Elementary
In the world we live in, electronic devices are very common. However, devices brought from home, can be disruptive in our school setting. At Kay’s Creek we are a 1 x 1 school. Every student has access to a school device throughout each school day. Students are not allowed to use a privately-owned device during school hours.
A cell phone, smart watch, or other calling device may be in a student’s backpack during the school day. It must be turned off and not removed from the backpack until the school day’s end, when the student is outside the building. Cell phones are not allowed to be used on a school bus. Electronic devices shall not be used in a way that threatens, humiliates, harasses, or intimidates school-related individuals, including students, employees and visitors or violates local, state, or federal law. Electronic devices may not be used during testing and assessments such as RISE, Reading inventory, etc.
If a student violates this policy, his/her electronic device may be confiscated. When an employee confiscates an electronic device under this policy, he/she takes reasonable measure to label and secure the device. The device is then turned over to an administrator. The device will be returned to the student’s parent/guardian after the student has complied with any other disciplinary consequence.
