Ring Ring--Cellphone Updates

Big picture

Phones have been a significant problem since January. Below is the update we went over with students this week. If you have a message to get to your middle schooler, you can always call the office.


Student cell phones should be put away at all times.

  • If you have your cell phone out during class, you will be asked to bring it in the office for the remainder of the day.
  • If you refuse to turn in your phone, your parent/guardian will be called to pick up the phone (and possibly you if you are disrespectful) and it will be turned in the remainder of the week.
  • If it continues to be a problem, you will not be able to have your phone with you at school.
  • If the teacher allows you to listen to music, you can use your Chromebook.

Phones can be used:

  • at lunch
  • in the hallways during transition
  • before and after school
  • on projects with teacher approval


This begins each day at 7:50 and ends at dismissal.
