Students have discovered a new interest in the form of spinners (see picture). The toy may help people who have trouble focusing or fidgeting by acting as a release mechanism for nervous energy or stress. Unfortunately, these toys are creating a distraction in the classroom and on campus.
We will be making announcements beginning tomorrow that all spinners, unless educationally or medically documented as a necessity, will not be allowed. They also may not be traded or sold on campus. The office will not investigate the loss or possible theft of spinners. Beginning Wednesday, spinners which are seen in the classroom or in halls will be confiscated.
**This will also apply to other items such as Pokemon cards, yo-yos, etc.
