Dear Savanna Families,

One of the topics we discuss frequently is student use of cellphones at school.  While our rules are quite clear that phones must be silenced and put away during the school day, it is amazing the number of disruptions many learners incur daily from social networking site like snapchat, instagram, instant messaging, etc.  

These are blocked by school wifi, so families are paying for service to allow these nearly constant disruptions.  I’m asking you to accept responsibility for monitoring your child's use.  Parents should have their child’s passwords and consider keeping your student’s phone for a day (or better overnight) and monitor the chatter.  If your child limits this or declines to engage, congratulations.  If your child is a chronic user, please help them make responsible choices.

Please consider joining us for our next Parent Advisory Committee meeting on February 15 at 6:30pm in our LMC. Topics are determined by the interest of the group and Mr. Christofferson and I are prepared to facilitate the ideas raised.


Sandy Eskrich, Principal
