Have you ever walked into your school on the first day and were so excited to post all over snapchat about how your day is going for all of your friends to see? Well not here at Blue Ridge. Over the summer, the administraters thought it would be a great idea to change the wifi password at the school. The reasoning behind all of that is because “Students don’t focus as much when they are on their phones.”
3 staff members reached out about how they feel about this situation.
-SRO, Mr Deck thinks “its a good idea for the students. Phones are a distraction.”
-MS/HS teacher, Mrs Krause feels “the restrictions on wifi will eliminate unproductive classroom behavior. Students will be less likely to use social media and stay on top of things such as school work.”
-Finally, Dawn Cook, believes “its a good idea because with no phones on the wifi, the chrome books will run faster and it will make the internet in general better for everyone.”
Being off of your phone all day everyday may be hard but it is well worth it if you get to earn a better education by the end of the school year and have good grades all year round.
