How our middle school dealt with the loss of one of its students to suicide by creating a program focused on getting students to unplug to connect. Through a restructuring of the school-wide cell phone policy, classroom talks about social media, devices & gaming, as well as a new outlook and approach for teachers and staff. Work together to create real-life community and model healthy, balanced lifestyle behaviors in our digital on-line lives for our kids/students. Put down the devices: Be Here, Be Present, Be Real, Be BEtter ToGether and unplug to connect.
