Fidget Spinners

Fidget spinners are popping up everywhere, including Henry Braun School.  However, there is a great deal of misinformation surrounding the use of fidgets. Fidgets are sensory and self-regulation tools utilized within a classroom setting. There is an array of tools falling under the heading of fidget. Each is utilized for specific reasons and chosen for individual students by trained Learning Resource Teachers or Occupational Therapists. Lately, students have been bringing fidget spinners to school and playing with them in the classroom and on the playground.  When they are used by students in this manner and when they have not received them by trained specialists, they are not considered an educational adaptation, but a TOY.  As such, similar to all other toys, fidget spinners are to remain at home and NOT to be brought to school. We appreciate your help in keeping our school a learning environment.
