Electronic Devices Policy

All electronic devices, such as cell phones, music players, cameras, electronic games, or beepers, are not allowed to be used at school. If visible in school, they will be confiscated and returned only to a parent or guardian. Any electronic device confiscated will result in a Saturday School detention. The school assumes no liability for valuable electronic devices that are brought to school and are lost or stolen.

Cellular Phones

Parents may wish their child to carry a cellular telephone for safety and security reasons, but because of their potential for disruption in classrooms, students may not use cell phones during school hours (8:35 a.m. - 3:15 p.m.) anywhere inside school or on school grounds. Students may have cell phones in their possession but they must remain turned off and out of sight. Cell phones will be confiscated if they are seen during the school day because they will be assumed to be in use if they are in sight; each confiscation will result in a Saturday School Detention. Parents may pick up cell phones that have been confiscated in the Main Office.

If parents need to leave a message for a student, parents are encouraged to call the Main Office, where the office staff will ensure that the message is delivered. Students should not receive phone calls on their cell phones from parents or family members during school hours. If a cell phone rings or a text message sounds during school hours, the cell phone will be confiscated and disciplinary consequences awarded.

Telephones

Students needing to make an emergency phone call during the school day must have their planner hall pass signed by their teacher to go to the Main Office. Students can then use the phone in the Main Office to place their call
