What is the cell phone policy at Jackpot?

We encourage all students to keep personal electronic devices at home, including cell phones. While we understand a parent’s wish to stay connected to their children during the school day, we cannot be held responsible for the loss, theft, or damage of any personal electronic device. If your child must bring a cell phone or other electronic communication device to school, it should remain powered off and/or in your child’s locker during the school day. Devices may only be used before and after school, during lunch, and at extracurricular school-sponsored events. Please review our student handbook for more information.

How can I get more involved?

We strongly encourage your involvement. Please take the time to introduce yourself to your child’s teacher and let him or her know that you’re interested in getting involved. We also invite you to join the PTO. Parents with limited time can support their child’s education in some basic ways, including:

  • Encouraging your child to get plenty of sleep 
  • Offering a healthy diet, including a good breakfast (or getting your child to school early enough to eat breakfast in our cafeteria)
  • Helping your child get up in plenty of time for school
  • Providing neat, clean, comfortable clothes
