Away For the Day

This article highlights a national movement encouraging middle schools to prohibit phones during the school day. More info is available on the Away For the Day website.

It’s great that MUMS’ policy on phones already supports this recommendation (phones off and not with the student during the school day). But it’s always great to let our school administrators know that we support the policy!
