Electronics

Electronics are allowed for use at Lakewood High School but not during class time. Students will be asked to keep electronics silent and out of sight. Electronics will be confiscated if a problem continues. Devices will be returned at end of class period, or at end of day if usage is a chronic problem. In some rare cases, a parent may be asked to retrieve device in office.  Phones and iPods are allowed to be used in class to listen to music (turned down low) during silent reading, journal and essay writing as this can assist some students in tuning out noise and distractions around them. Students are notified when it is okay to use these devices.
