EDS students have certainly followed the latest trend of wearing several bracelets and silly bands ( sometimes dozens!) on their arms. Generally, we have not had major problems with this but they can be a distraction in class. Students that snap the bands, play with them, and disrupt instruction in any way with the bracelets will usually be asked by the teacher to remove them. Please notice the bracelets and bands your child is wearing to assure that the wording on them is appropriate for a PreK-5th grade setting and that bands are not so tight as to restrict blood flow. My general policy on things such as this is to permit them unless they become a serious impediment to our classroom instruction, student safety and well-being. Please contact me if you have any concerns about this growing trend!
