Social Media and Electronic Devices

Social Media and Electronic Devices (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Kik, Text Messaging, and Phone Calls)

It is the parent’s responsibility to monitor use of social media, cell phones, and other electronic devices.  Valuable school time is wasted to investigate issues arising from these situations.  We will report it to parents and expect it to be handled on the home front.

The administration understands that students sometimes need cell phones to communicate with family after school.  If a child has a cell phone at school it should ALWAYS be in the off position.  If a phone is determined to be on, in use, or visible it will be taken up and the parent must pick it up.

Protocol to Classroom Visits and Observations

Please check in at the office anytime you are on the school's campus.
Please read the policies, requirements and protocols for all classroom visits.

Attendance

Please be aware of the District Attendance Protocol.  Students must be in school, on time each day!  Missed instruction due to absence (excused or unexcused) has a negative impact on achievement.  Adamson Middle School follows the District protocol with no exceptions.

Operation 98% will reward students for being in school each day, on time, and preferably all day.
