Willis Cell Phone and Electronic Device Policy
At Willis, we recognize that we are living in a highly connected world where many of our students place a great deal of importance on the use of cell phones and digital devices for communication. We also know that (when used appropriately) technology can serve to enhance/supplement educational experiences. However, research also indicates that cell phones can be a significant contributor to distraction and lack of focus. For this reason, we have outlined a phone and electronic device policy that seeks to find an appropriate balance between times when students are permitted to use phones, and when they must be put away.
We will review this information with students when they arrive at Willis, but feel free to read our cell phone and elecronic device policy (linked).
Parents, you may sign-up to receive periodic text reminders about upcoming events using the NEW Willis Remind account. Use the link to sign-up, or text @willisj to the number 81010. See remind.com for more information. You can also download the REMIND app to manage your alerts.
