What is the cell phone policy at Young Public School?

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 you need to contact your child during the school day, please call the front office. We will pass any messages along to your child. Please review our student handbook for more information.

Will my child have access to the Internet while on campus?

Students can access the Internet for homework and school-related research under the supervision of qualified school personnel. We expect our students to behave responsibly on school computer networks and require that they abide by our Electronic Information Services Policy available in our student handbook.

May my high schooler drive to and from school?

Yes, with the appropriate documentation on file. However, students may not drive any time during school hours or sit in their vehicles during the lunch period. A copy of the student's driver’s license, vehicle registration, and insurance must be kept on file at the school.

How can I get more involved?

We strongly encourage your involvement and welcome you to our school. Please take some time to introduce yourself to your child’s teacher and let him or her know that you’re interested in getting involved. They may have projects you can help with or need volunteers to read with students. Parents can also 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; and
  • providing neat, clean, comfortable clothes.
