Fidget spinners are the latest new toy craze going around. The toys are aimed at helping kids stay focused, but some claim the toys are causing distractions in classrooms.
The EVSC has been seeing a lot of these fidgets floating around their schools.
Right now, the EVSC does not have any policies in place for the toys but each classroom is determining whether to allow them or not.
In some ways, the fidget spinners can be helpful students who may need to ‘fidget’ with something to stay focused.
Some school districts across the country have had to make policies on the toys – with some districts even banning them.
