Notice of Revised Junior High Cell Phone Policy
Lakeland Ridge is implementing a new cell phone policy for our junior high students. In an effort to be proactive with today’s growing social and interactive technology trends, it is our hope that this policy will increase awareness and training while putting into practice social and professional etiquette relating to electronic devices.
Students may use their cell phones during class time, with the teacher’s permission, for instructional purposes. They may also use their cell phones during lunch (12:18pm - 1:00pm) and transition (10:15am - 10:30am). Phones must be silent and out of sight during instructional time, this means in a pocket, bag or in their locker. A safe and secure place in the classroom will be provided for students if they do not have pockets or a bag.
Students may not use their cell phone during instructional time unless otherwise given permission by the teacher. This includes office runners and/or students who are in the hallways or in the restrooms during instructional time. Each teacher has the discretion to allow and regulate the use of cellphones in the classroom and on specific projects.
Violating the established policy will result in the following:
- First offense- the phone is taken away until the end of the period.
- Second offense- the phone is taken away until the end of the day. The phone will be placed in a sealed envelope and stored in the office. The student can pick up the phone at the end of the day.
- Third offense- the phone must be picked up by a parent or guardian. The phone will be placed in a sealed envelope and stored in the office until a parent can pick it up.
- Fourth offense- possible school suspension or the student will not be allowed to have their phone at school for a set time frame (discussion with parents to determine appropriate action).
Lost, Stolen, or Damaged Devices:
Each user is responsible for their own cell phone and should use it responsibly and appropriately. Lakeland Ridge School takes no responsibility for stolen, lost, or damaged cell phones, including lost or corrupted data on those devices. While school employees will help students identify how to keep personal devices secure, students will have the final responsibility for securing their cell phones. Please check with your homeowner’s policy regarding coverage of personal electronic devices, as many insurance policies can cover loss or damage.
We appreciate your support in the implementation of this policy. We ask that you refrain from texting your child during the school day, if you have an emergency please contact the office.
If you have any questions or are in need of some clarification please contact the school at (780)-416-9018

2015 EIPS Parent Survey Results
The Fall 2015 EIPS Parent Survey was drafted based on key Accountability Pillar Survey questions and a System Satisfaction Survey that was administered across EIPS from 1999 to 2005. The survey was concise and gathered parent feedback on key educational quality characteristics: the quality of teaching, the quality of school leadership, communication and parent involvement, citizenship and discipline. The survey results will improve EIPS’ overall accountability structure and provide valuable data for school and division planning. 3,173 surveys were completed by parents. This is approximately a 19% response rate.
