Cell Phone Policy Reminder

GCS acknowledges that parents may opt to allow students to bring cell phones/two way communication devices (including watches) on school property for the purpose of communication as long as they are not activated, used, displayed or visible during the instructional day (which is as soon as students enter the building). School employees are permitted to confiscate any device which is activated, used, displayed or visible once students go thru metal detection. Phones which require parent pick up must be picked up by parent or guardian.

Therefore, the expectation is that if parents allow students to bring phones to school that they remain in their bookbag, OFF and AWAY, from the time they arrive at school until they leave at the end of the day.

See Rule 18 in the GCS Code of Conduct for full policy.
