Students are strongly discouraged from bringing cell phones to school. Each classroom has a phone and students may also request use of the office phones with written permission from a teacher or faculty member. Students who absolutely must bring a cell phone to school will be required to keep the cell phone turned off and in their bag at all times. Students will be responsible for the security of the phone. If the cell phone rings during school hours or is seen out of the bag by a faculty member, it may be confiscated and turned into the school office. Parents will be required to pick up the phone.
