ESD+ offers before and after school interest-based programs such as film, fishing, French, youth and government and more, for middle school students. These programs are led by middle school faculty and meet weekly throughout the school year.
ESD+ Extended Day provides a monitored time and space, before and after school, for middle school students to engage in a variety of activities such as working on homework with classmates, playing games, meeting with teachers, bonding with classmates, and more. This program is offered free of charge.
The middle school years are a critical developmental stage for students, and interacting with one another, face to face, is an essential part of that development. Students in grades five through seven are not permitted to have cell phones or smart watches on campus. This policy covers phones, smart watches, and other portable or wearable devices. Use of these devices is an eighth grade privilege and, as such, can be revoked in cases of non-compliance with these guidelines:
Eighth grade students are permitted to bring these devices to school, but may not be used from the time they arrive on campus until 3:25 p.m.
Eighth grade students’ cell phones or smart watches must be TURNED OFF and placed in lockers during the entire day.
Cell phones are NOT permitted in locker rooms for any purpose.
Should a student fail to follow these guidelines, the device may be picked up by a parent in the Middle School Office.
If a student needs to contact his or her parents, he or she may do so in the Middle School Office on a school phone. If a parent needs to contact a child, he or she may contact the Middle School Office at (214) 358-5847.
All middle school students use school-managed Chromebooks. Having a single platform environment allows teachers to use the device as a learning tool, and having managed Chromebooks allows the School to push out applications that all students need to use. These are the only devices permitted on campus during the academic day except by written permission from the Division Head.
Upon entering middle school at ESD, each student will be issued a school-managed Chromebook with the cost included in tuition. This includes a case and insurance for one free replacement during the middle school years. After the first replacement, if a student damages his or her device, he or she must buy a replacement Chromebook through the school and it will be charged to the incidental student account in the Eagles Nest.
Chromebooks should arrive at school fully charged each day.
Students are expected to have their own set of headphones each day. With that in mind, part of being in a community is being present, and, as such, use of headphones, including AirPods, should only be used under the direction of a teacher. They should not be worn in the Schoolhouse Commons or other community places.
In and out of the classroom, students must use their electronic devices in keeping with the RUP and the Code of Conduct. Students are encouraged not to leave these devices unattended on campus at any time because they may become lost or stolen. Students should put their names on these devices and keep the provided case on the Chromebook at all times. The School retains the right to search electronic devices when necessary if there is sufficient suspicion that said device contains inappropriate or illegal material.
