Cell Phones

The use/possession of cell phones is discouraged in school. Phones are available for student use in the office. The safest place for a cell phone is in a student’s locker. Cell phones may not be visible in the classrooms; they may not be used in the classrooms; they may not disrupt the classroom; photos or videos may not be taken in school, on school grounds, or on buses. Students will be asked to put their phones or electronic devices away if seen in the hallways and classrooms, they will be confiscated and returned as outlined in the discipline philosophy and procedures (p.25) if they refuse to comply.

Students are strongly encouraged to use the phone in the main office or, in case of illness, the nurse's phone. The school will not be responsible for the damage, loss or theft of cell phones.
