    Laptop Device/Cell Phone Guidelines:
    1.  Laptop devices should be closed for hallway transport and not opened in the classrooms until instructed to do so by a classroom teacher.  Be sure to charge your device each night.
    2.  Cell phones should remain in lockers, be left in backpacks, or placed in phone box upon entering the classroom unless instructed to use by a classroom teacher.  Misuse will result in the phone being turned in at the front office.  No music in the hallways.

    Parent/Student ALERT
    All PSSA testing will take place on computers this year.  Please have your child check their computer, stylus pen, and charger to be sure that they are in working order prior to April 15th.  Also, please be sure that their name tag is on each device.  Students must bring charged computers to school each day to complete the test. 
     
    The Cougar team is also requesting snack items for the students to enjoy when they complete the PSSA test each day.  Recommended items include individually wrapped, nut-free, snacks including goldfish, pretzels, gummy snacks, and chips.  Please send any donated items to your child's homeroom teacher.  You are welcome to send reusable water bottles with your child each day.
     
    It is important that your child come to school well rested and ready to perform their best on the PSSA test.  We are so proud of the progress being made by our Cougars!  Thank you for your support.
