As the “Internet of Things” continues to evolve and revolutionize, wearable technology is becoming increasingly popular. Smart watches that incorporate activity trackers and have the ability to make phone calls and send messages are perhaps the most notable among wearables. Gizmos watches, popular among younger students, help them stay connected to their parents in a safe, more controlled way. Hudson City Schools permits students to wear Gizmos watches and other wearables as long as they do not cause a distraction and are used appropriately. We recommend that parents turn off all games during the school day. Also, students should not use a wearable during school hours to call home. If a student is ill or has a concern, he or she should go to his or her teacher or trusted adult, and the adult will take care of the student. Our goal remains to support student use of technology responsibly.
