Beginning this year, CHS will implement a new Electronics Policy designed to promote student safety and focus on student learning. For the safety and welfare of their students, cell phones will be permitted on campus — with limitations. However, earbuds/headphones will NOT be permitted on campus. All cell phones and wearable technology including Apple Watches will be turned off and collected during formal assessments.
Students who violate this policy may face discipline including the confiscation of their cell phones and/or earbuds/headphones. Violations of the school’s Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) may result in students losing the privilege of using a school Chromebook or desktop computer.
