Stance on Electronic Devices
More information about our stance on electronic devices can be found on page 7 of the Thomas Russell Middle School 2023 - 2024 Student Handbook.
ELECTRONIC DEVICES: Recent research has shown excessive cell phone and social media usage can cause an increase in anxiety and depression amongst middle school aged children. Any electronic device (cell phone, Nintendo Switch, Airpods, or smartwatch, etc.) used without explicit permission of TRMS staff may be deemed to have created disruption to the instructional environment and will be confiscated; disciplinary actions may also take place.
