Dangerous Apps and how to monitor kids phones on Apple
The counselors at Depoali have put together a list of apps that some of our students are using. We thought this information might be good to share with parents as well as aunts, uncles, friends, etc. It is pretty scary what is out there and hard to stay on top of them because it seems like a new app comes out every day. We're also including how to monitor kid’s phones on Apple. Please see the following attachments.

Overhead Intercom Paging of Students and Non-Essential Deliveries
Due to our double class schedule we are unable to page students or make overhead loud speaker announcements while the other half of the school are in session. We ask that you notify your child in advance when you will be making important deliveries or picking them up for appointments. You can also send them with a note to turn into the office so that the office staff can help remind them of the time to meet you in the office. Please avoid deliveries of non-essential items as these are disruptive to both students and staff. Coffee drinks, frozen drinks, balloons, flowers, stuffed animals, etc. are not allowed into the school. Helium balloons that escape can set off sensitive security sensors in the building and may not be allowed on busses. Students who receive these items will need to consume them in the office prior to entering Main Street or pick them up from the office after school.
Attendance...When your student is absent from school please call the attendance secretary at (775) 327-3828...or have the student bring a note to the office within 3 days explaining the reason for the absence (note must be signed by parent), be sure to indicate students' first & last name and grade on the note.
Homework requests: Students and parents can email teachers to request work. Teacher email addresses can be found in the Staff Directory or in Infinite Campus.Three or more days of absence:
If you know that your student will be absent for three or more days, the student should bring a parent note detailing the dates of the absence and the reason for the absence to the office. The student will be given a PRE-ARRANGED ABSENCE FORM to take around to all of his/her teachers who will fill in the form with any homework to be completed during the absence. The form then needs to be reviewed and signed by the student, the parents, and the office. Please note: depending on the length of the absence, this process takes time and should be started at least one week in advance of the absence.__________________________________________________________________________________________________________
