That's correct! HS^2 is going cell phone free!
As always, the staff at HS^2 constantly looks at our past school year and thinks of ways to try to improve engagement, collaboration, community, and student achievement. We are hopeful that by eliminating the distractions that come with student cell phone use, this will be a step in the right direction!
How does it work? Every teacher in the school has a cell phone "hotel" that the students drop their phone into at the beginning of the class. At the end of the class, students are able to retrieve their phone for use until their next class. Students are also able to utilize their phone during lunch.
After the first day of school, we are excited to see how this change has already impacted the HS^2 community in a positive way!
