REMINDER:
2018-2019 NO CELL PHONE & Electronic Devices POLICY

Image result for NO CELL PHONE ZONE    

Dear Parents:
Because we have seen an increase in cyber bullying nationwide, and we have seen a decrease in social interaction between students, we as a faculty and staff have decided that cell phones will not be allowed at Griffin this 2018-19 school year.

Please be prepared . Students will not be allowed to have their cell phones
out. Cell phones must be turned off at school.  If they need to contact you, they may visit the front office and use our school phone that is designated just for students. If you need to contact your child during the day, you too can call the front office, and we can call them out of class (678-842-6917).Thank you for your cooperation and support as we try to shape our students into outstanding citizens. 
For more information, see page 7 of Student Handbook.
