ROSS - Telephones / Electronic Devices

Students are not permitted to use or carry cell phones, MP3 players, I-pods, CD/radio headsets, pagers or any other type of electronic equipment during school hours. (Use of cell phones for photography purposes or text messaging is prohibited.) While we realize that cell phones have become an important way for parents to keep in touch with their children, these items have no place in the classroom. They must be turned off and left in the student's bag, or with his or her teacher, during the school day. It is recommended that all electronic devices be left home, for the school cannot assume responsibility for lost or stolen personal property.

Students at Braintree High School now have access to over 350 Chromebooks for use in classes. These are in addition to the six desktop labs. The high school has also upgraded a lab to iMacs; currently, students use the iMacs for video production and music composition. In the coming years, students will be able to bring their own Chromebook, laptop, and tablet devices and the coursework utilizing the iMacs may expand to include additional arts and languages. Nine of the district's schools are also experiencing upgrades in student technology.

Ross Safety Reminder

A safety issue I need to discuss is related to dismissal. Adults and students continue to cross Hayward Street at Hayward Market/Dunkin Donuts. Crossing at this location is dangerous and conflicts with safety lessons your children are learning. At home and at school we teach children to use the crosswalk. If you must cross Hayward Street, please use the crosswalk at Hayward and Commercial Street. There are two crossing guards assigned there for your safety. If you are traveling east on Hayward on foot, there is also a crossing guard assigned to Howard and Hayward Street to support pedestrian traffic.
