BYOD – “Bring Your Own Device”
Students at LHHS have the option of bringing an electronic device for educational use in the classroom. I
will allow use of these devices at DESIGNATED times specified by me. Otherwise, all electronic devices
should be silenced and placed out of sight. If cell phones or media devices are seen or heard in the
classroom when permission is not given, they can be turned in to the office and only returned after a $15
fine is paid.
DISCLAIMER: These policies and guidelines may be changed by the teacher, administrators or district as needed.
Please keep this page in your notebook at all times
