Cell Phone Policy

  • Cell phones are a normal means for parents/guardians to coordinate after-school activities, schedules, and transportation issues. However, in the classroom cell phones are a distraction, taking away from the educational process by decreasing classroom engagement, hindering student communication, negatively impacting school culture, and limiting student success.  Recognizing this reality the following policy will apply to cell phones within the school:

    Prohibited Cell Phone Use–No cell phones in the classroom. Upon entering class, cell phones (and other electronic devices) must be turned off and cell phones must be put into the designated classroom container. No cell phone use is allowed while out on hall pass during class time.

    Allowed Cell Phone Use–Advisory; in the hallway during class changing time; and in the cafeteria during assigned lunch. The cell phone privilege must not interfere with students arriving to class on time. 

    Any student who repeatedly violates the cell phone policy will have his or her phone confiscated, lose the privilege to carry a cell phone in school, and the parent will need to come collect the phone and discuss the potential disciplinary action.

    Photography and videography are prohibited in school or on school grounds without prior permission. Use of the cell phone in unauthorized ways to include inappropriate picture taking or filming, harassing and bullying behavior or a complete disregard for the policy could result in more serious actions such as referral to the alternative school and/or possible expulsion.
