Cell Phones and Smart Watches

It is important to share and remind our CCE parents and students of our elementary school policy regarding student cellphone or smart watch use during school hours. Thank you for your support with this.

  • Cell phones must be stored and turned off in backpacks during school hours.
  • Smart Phones may be worn, though the student should not access any watch apps or digital tools for use during the school day.
  • Students are not allowed to text or make calls during school hours using their cell phones or smart watch devices. Students need to come to the office to call a parent or guardian.
  • Alarms must be turned off on cell phones and smart watches during the school day.

CCE Staff Parking Lot Reminder

This is a gentle reminder that parents and community members do not have access to our CCE Staff Parking Lot between, 8:00 a.m.-3:30 p.m.. In addition, we are also working with our community pickleball neighbors to avoid parking their vehicles in our lot, too. Thanks for your CARES in this matter.
