"Day of Unplugging" a success at Gibraltar

The Gibraltar High School Peer Leaders organized an event that proves students can survive a day without their smartphones and technology.  The “Day of unplugging” from technology was this past Tuesday and had over a third of the student body participating in the voluntary event.  Chelsea Roberts, the school counselor, says about 70 of the 199 high schoolers checked their phones in at the door.



Even some faculty participated in the first-ever “unplugging” of technologies.  Nearly all students received 100 percent participation, according to Roberts.  Hopes are to keep the event going on an annual basis at Gibraltar High School.
