Cell-Phone and Electronics Policy
Gateway Middle School adheres strictly to the district policy regarding electronics at school. All cell phones, cameras, mp3 players, iPods, tablets, computers and other electronics that students bring to school will be immediately confiscated and returned only to the parents. Please see the district policy below.
The Student Acceptable Use Policy and Regulation governs the use of all technology in the SLPS, including cyber bullying (Mo Rev Stat). Violations may result in loss of user privileges, suspension, expulsion and civil or criminal penalties. Students shall not have an expectation of privacy in anything they create, send, receive or store on District technology. Possession and use of cell phones and electronic cameras are prohibited on school campus. Students caught in violation of cell phones, cameras, and hand-held electronic items are subject to confiscation or search and seizure. Items confiscated will only be returned to parents/guardians after meeting with school officials.
Students are prohibited from taking pictures of other students and staff. By so doing violates the privacy rights of other students and staff and are subject to discipline pursuant to district policies on acceptable use and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). The District monitors electronic communications and information stored on District technology in the regular course of business to protect student users and District equipment. Under certain circumstances, students’ off campus use of technology that disrupts the operation of schools is also subject to discipline (e.g. use of Facebook and other media sources to harass or cyber bully).
School Health & Wellness Policy
Gateway Middle School has had the privilege of being a part of a pilot program called Alliance for a Healthier Generation for the past 4 years. We are trying to teach the students how to live a healthy lifestyle through this program and the school district’s wellness policy. If you would like to find out more about this program and get involved you are welcome to join the School Health/Wellness Council (SHAC).
As part of this program we are teaching students to eat healthy snacks, and exercise. So we ask that you send healthy snacks with your student/s. We are not allowing students to bring in chips, candy, soft drinks, energy drinks, gum, sunflower seeds with shells, and Kool-Aid in any type of packaging for snacks. If the students bring these items they will be confiscated. The confiscated items will not be returned without a parent coming to get them. Snacks that are allowed include trail mix, nuts, crackers, pretzels, granola bars, fruit snacks, fresh fruit, water, Gatorade, juice.
The student will be allowed to bring chips (maximum two small bags), soft drink and candy (maximum two pieces) if they bring a lunch to school. They must have a sandwich or a main dish before it is considered a lunch.
All glass items, permanent markers, sports balls (basketballs, footballs, etc.) and flip-flops will also be confiscated upon entering the building. Flip-flops will only be returned on the last Friday of the month. All open containers of food or drink that are confiscated will be immediately thrown away.
