All technology provided is property of the Conestoga Valley School District and any damage to the device, chargers, cases, or other components or loss of any property will incur a fine.

Acceptable Internet Use
Use of the Internet shall be limited to educational and instructional purposes related to the curriculum. All persons who access the Internet must conduct themselves in a responsible, ethical, and polite manner while using the network. Before initially having access to the Internet, students must complete an Internet Utilization Form, which includes parent/guardian approval. If parents/guardians prefer that their children do not have access to the Internet under any circumstances, they should send their request in writing to the building principal on an annual basis.
Cell Phones: Students are only permitted to use cell phones under the direction of a teacher or administrator. Classroom use is only permitted at the teacher’s discretion. Students should not assume it is their right or privilege to use personal devices, including cell phones, during the school day. Use of a cell phone includes, but is not limited to, communicating with others using the cell phone, texting, taking pictures, video recording, audio recording, or accessing or attempting to access the Internet. The above mentioned use will result in school disciplinary action and, if applicable may result in police action.
1st Offense is a Level I Offense -- The cell phone and all its contents are confiscated; to be returned to student at the end of the school day.
2nd Offense is a Level II Offense -- The cell phone and all its contents are confiscated; only returned to the parents with the appropriate disciplinary action taken.
Subsequent offenses are considered a Level III Offense and may result in suspension and will result in confiscation of the cell phone and all its contents; returned only to the parent.
Administration reserves the right to determine the severity of cell phone use infractions and assign levels of disciplinary action as appropriate. Disciplinary action regarding misuse of cell phone may include but not be limited to:
- Community Service

Community Web Portal
CVSD’s “Sapphire” Community Web Portal allows parents to access their child’s classroom progress, homework assignments, and teacher comments.
Parents must apply for an account before using the Community Web Portal by clicking on the Community Web Portal Application and Acceptable Use Policy Form. The application is done once for each user and does not need to be repeated each year. When prompted, parents will enter the district KEYWORD, and create a username and password. A notification letter containing a school-generated PIN (personal identification number) will be emailed to parents after the signed registration form is received by the Sapphire school administrator. Please keep this information in a secure place.
