We need to a better job being responsible with our cell phones. As a reminder, your cell phones are to be put away before you go to advisor in the morning, and this needs to be part of the regular morning routine. Let’s review:
1. When you are dismissed to your locker in the morning before advisor class, shut your phone off and put it away. It should not be on your person and is not needed during the day.
2. If you need to make a call, please check with your teachers. When the time is appropriate, they will allow you to make calls.
3. If your parents need to get in touch with you, they can call the school and we will get messages to you.
4. If a teacher sees you with a phone during the day, you will need to give it to them. It will be brought to the office and you can pick it up after school.
5. If you are found with your phone during the day a second time, your phone will be brought to the office and your parent/guardian must come to pick it up.
6. Once Period 8 ends, you may get your phone, but should only use it for emergencies.
Thanks for doing your part by remembering to shut off your phones and putting them away during the school day.

In July 2010, The Maine State Board of Education adopted the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) which are a national set of learning expectations for college and career success that were developed by teachers, parents, school administrators and education experts. Maine is one of forty-six states that have adopted these. These adopted standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn K-12 in math and language arts.
