Wearable Technology Use
Wrentham Public Schools, in cooperation with the families of our students, share the responsibility of teaching students to be responsible and respectful digital citizens. Part of this citizenship requires that they not let personal devices, such as wearable technology (smartwatches, fitbits, Gizmo, Vtech watches, etc.) disrupt their learning or interfere with the learning of their classmates. Although students may bring wearable technology with them to school, their wearable technology must remain in their backpacks at all times throughout the school day. Teachers, support staff, and administration reserve the right to confiscate wearable technology from students who are in violation of this wearable technology policy. Additionally, wearable technology may not be used on the school buses and may be taken away by bus drivers at their discretion. If a student has their wearable technology confiscated, a family member will then be contacted to retrieve the item.
