Larose Cut Off Middle School Cellphone Policy During State Testing

 

Everyone is encouraged to leave all cellphones, SMART watches, FITBITS, and/or any other electronic devices at home on the days of State Testing.

 

If any of these items are brought to school during testing, the student will be given an individual zip-lock bag to place their items in before testing begins. These items WILL NOT be returned until the end of the day.

 

This policy and procedure is set in place for test security reasons. Violation of this policy can result in testing irregularity which can cause the student and school to receive a score of 0.

 

Thank you for your help in following this policy!

Parents,please monitor your child's at home assignments and make sure they are completed before due dates. Also if your child has a high absence this school year, please have them go on Khan Academy to watch videos on concepts they are having difficulty with or concepts they missed while out before the Leap test. Very IMPORTANT to prepare for this test. They will get lots of review practice in class but they must do their part at home also. Thank you for all you do for the children of Lafourche Parish.
