In case of a lottery, we will notify all parents about the process in a timely manner. Once we fill all available spaces, we will place your application on a waiting list and notify you accordingly.

What is the cell phone/electronic device policy at Adams?

While we allow students to carry cell phones on our campus, we expect students to turn these, and other electronic devices, off or to put them in silent mode and store them out of sight during school hours. We prohibit the following actions on electronic devices during school hours, including scheduled breaks (lunch, nutrition, Saturday School, and the before- and after-school program): 

  • Talking 
  • Texting 
  • Posting to social media outlets 
  • Listening to music 
  • Taking pictures 
  • Playing games 
  • Recording voice or video 

We do, however, recognize there is an educational application and utilization of cell phones/electronic devices and that those devices may complement and enhance instruction. Therefore, we may allow smart phones as strictly directed and supervised by the classroom teacher.
