We’re seeing more cell phone use by elementary students in recent weeks. While these can be great tools, we wish to emphasize face-to-face interactions while students are at school, while also ensuring safety of all students and limiting distractions.

We are asking that if elementary students are bringing phones to school, they keep them in their backpacks at all times. If they are needed to call for a ride, students should ask a staff member’s permission and ensure that it is put away immediately after. This will also apply before and after school while students are on campus.

Thank you for helping us to maintain a positive learning environment for all kids. If you have questions or concerns, please email our Elementary Vice Principal, Jessica Rand at jessicar@cedars.bc.ca
