New Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Policy
Parents/Guardians and Students,
The Snowline Joint Unified School District (SJUSD) has adopted a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy for all schools in the district (the full policy is included with this correspondence). This notification is to inform and guide you through this new opportunity.
As the nature of education changes and more materials are made available in digital form, students are increasingly required to use and to produce materials in digital form. Snowline Joint Unified School District recognizes the learning benefits of using personal devices in school to support students.
This policy will allow students to bring many of their own technology devices to school for use in our classrooms, such as laptops, tablets, and cell phones with browsing capabilities for educational purposes only. The use of personal devices falls under the SJUSD Internet Acceptable Use Policy. As with other personally owned items, the district is not liable for the loss, damage, misuse, or theft of personally owned devices brought to school.
Serrano Baseball Wins Southern Section Division 4 CIF Championship
by Riley Holman, Sports Writer
Perhaps the Serrano Diamondbacks may not have won the CIF SS Division 4 Championship at the San Manuel Stadium the exact way they dreamed it. A correctly overturned call by the umpires on the last play of the game gave the Diamondbacks their victory. It was a unique way to be declared a champion, and the game will be remembered for its high stakes and drama.
Important information for next year's seniors
The counseling office has prepared a special handbook for seniors, as well as a PowerPoint presentation.
Library hours expanded to 6:30 am to 4:00 pm
