Blackboard Connect Service:

At Barnette, we have become stewards in the "green initiative." Our main form of school to home communication is via the Parent Square App. If you have not already, please make sure that you download this app in order to receive timely communication from the school, as well as from your child's teacher. Additionally, in the event of emergency situations, we are also able to utilize the Blackboard Connect service (Connect Ed). With the Blackboard Connect service, we will be able to deliver important school information in a timely manner. The Blackboard Connect service also supports our ability to reach you immediately in the event of an emergency. To ensure the Blackboard Connect service is as effective as possible it is important that we have your student's most up to date contact information at all times.

Barnette Media Center:

Each student comes to the media center once during their specials rotation. During this time, students are able to check out library books. Lessons center on choosing just right books, developing information literacy skills, digital citizenship, and age appropriate research projects. The media center is also open before school for open checkout. Students in grades 2-5 can come to the media center to exchange library books at this time. We ask that students check in with their teachers before coming to the media center.

Please contact Mrs. Purtill with any questions about the Barnette Library.

Any parents who are interested in helping in the media center during open checkout, please see Mrs. Purtill.

B.Y.O.T. or Bring Your Own Technology:


The Barnette Elementary School (BES) recognizes that as new technologies continue to change the world in which we live, they also provide many new and positive educational benefits for classroom instruction. Therefore, we have decided to implement Bring Your Own Technology (BYOT) at our schools. In this initiative, students are encouraged to bring their own technology devices to school to assist their learning experiences. This document is the policy, which we will adhere to as we establish this program within our schools. Please note that students who cannot bring in outside technology will be able to access and utilize the school’s equipment.


  • BYOT Agreement

    The use of technology to provide educational material is not a necessity but a privilege. A student does not have the right to use his or her laptop, cell phone or other electronic device while at school without the approval of school personnel. When abused, privileges will be taken away. When respected, they will benefit the learning environment as a whole.

    Students and parents/guardians must adhere to the CMS Student Code of Conduct, as well as all Board policies, particularly Student Internet Use and Network Access policy IJNDB and regulation IJNDB-R. 


    Limitation of Liability

    BES will not be responsible for damage or harm to persons, files, data, or hardware. While BES employs filtering and other safety and security mechanisms, and attempts to ensure their proper function, it makes no guarantees as to their effectiveness. BES will not be responsible, financially or otherwise, for unauthorized transactions conducted over the school network.


    Violations of this Acceptable Use Policy

    Violations of this policy may have disciplinary repercussions, including:

    • Suspension of network, technology, or computer privileges;
    • Notification to parents;
    • Detention or suspension from school and school-related activities;
    • Employment disciplinary action, up to and including termination of employment;
    • Legal action and/or prosecution.
