PLEASE NOTE: This petition is intended for residents of Rye, NY and members of the Rye City School District. Thank you!

This petition is to request that our children are provided a smartphone-free environment during school hours. Currently, some of our schools lack policies and enforcement of cell phone usage on school premises during the school day. The petition leaves it open to each family to make their own personal choices on smart phone usage outside of school hours. However, we'd like the district to encourage student engagement with their curriculum, fellow students, and school activities by mitigating the intrusion of phone use during the school day.

Some of the best schools across the country are embracing an "away for the day" policy with regard to smart phones. Rye City should join this list of schools. For more information on Reset Rye, please visit our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/ResetRye Thank you!
