CLHS Bring Your Own Device Program
The high school will start a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program second semester. Approved devices are tablets, IPAD's, laptops, Chromebooks, Kindles, and other wifi capable devices. Cell Phone rules will still apply on campus. Students can only use their cell phones as a learning device when teachers give permission for them to do so. If students do not have permission to use their cell phones, they must be put away. All students must turn in the BYOD form signed by the parent and student before they can bring a device. Your student can get the form in the High School Office or print off the form and bring it to school. Please also review the district acceptable use policy that is also posted online. If you have questions please contact Chris Murphy or Emily Hill at 357-5235.
You can view the BYOD slideshow from the BYOD Parent Meeting here.

Building Resilient Kids using the Nurtured Heart Approach®
Clear Lake Community Schools invites you to a parenting workshop on Building Resilient Kids using the Nurtured Heart Approach®
- Would you like to learn parenting tools that are easy to learn and won’t interrupt your normal routine?
- Feel like you are struggling as a parent?
- Does it seem like conventional methods of parenting are not working?
- Do you have a child you would describe as intense, maybe even challenging?
Join Stacie Lancaster, LMSW for 6 FREE weekly sessions
on the Nurtured Heart Approach ®.
This workshop is about a system designed specifically for the intense, difficult child. Not only does this approach hold up to extremely challenging behaviors, it works beautifully at the other end of the continuum; it also helps the average child to thrive. The Nurtured Heart Approach® helps all kids withstand the pressures of peers and the stresses of our times. All children have to be significantly stronger on the inside, more so than ever before. This model meets that need.
