Can my child bring a cell phone or wear an electronic watch?
The Board of Education has updated their policy regarding students bringing electronic items to school:
All students will adhere to the following:
Students may possess PMDs on MCPS property and at MCPS-sponsored activities; but may not turn them on until the end of the school day for independent use.
Students riding to or from school or school-sponsored activities on MCPS or chartered buses may use personal mobile devices as long as use does not impact the safe operation of the bus and complies with MCPS regulations.
Students are responsible for ensuring their devices are turned off and out of sight during times of unauthorized use; and must ensure that they are managed securely at all times.
