Free Cell Phone Consent Form Due Tomorrow!

Please don’t forget your consent form, signed by a parent or guardian, tomorrow.  We only have about half the freshman class having turned in forms so far, and the cell phones will go to another school if our freshmen don’t take advantage of the free phones.

You will be keeping the phones for 5 years at no cost to you.  We will be using them in class to complete homework, do research, visit practice websites, and use the textbooks.

If you don’t have a blank form, you can get one here.
