Elyria City Schools and Eastern Heights Middle School recognize the importance of communication and collaboration, and provide devices for students to be productive in the classroom. To keep the focus on academics and to reduce unnecessary distractions, the school enforces the following, in accordance with the Bring Your Own Device policy, as outlined in the Student Handbook:
Cell phones and all Bluetooth headphones shall be TURNED OFF upon entering the school building
Cell phones and all Bluetooth headphones are to be turned off and are not allowed to be seen or used in a classroom, library, common areas, or restrooms, unless specifically directed by a staff member
Common areas are defined as: hallways, locker rooms, restrooms, gym, cafeteria and outside staff supervised areas during school hours
Cell phones and all Bluetooth headphones are not allowed to be used during transition times or between classes
Families are always welcome to call the school office at 284-8015 and messages will be delivered to their student
If a student needs to make an emergency call during the day, they are to come up to the office
Cell phones and all Bluetooth headphones can be turned back on at the end of the school day, once students exit the building
Please review these standards for phones...
