IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING ELECTRONICS USE AT GFMS
Dear Parents and Students,
Cell phone, I-Pod, and other electronics use have become commonplace in society today. All of us at GFMS recognize, and actively partake in, these activities in our private lives. However, we have to balance several things when determining whether or not we should have an “open and free use” of these devices in school by students in the middle school building.
First, should GFMS decide for itself whether or not to let students “bring their own devices” (BYOD) for academic purposes? We are governed by the policies of the Carmel Central School District set forth by the Board of Education (BOE). While we are able to make building practice decisions on our own, BYOD is one area where we will be waiting to follow the future wishes of the Board of Education. Thus, we will not be engaging in BYOD at this time. Read more...
