Just a reminder: Cell Phones, CD Players, Electronics, Etc. and Telephone Usage Policy

We understand the value that cell phones have in communication between parents and students. For this reason, we allow cell phones at school for the sole use for after school hours. During school hours, 7:35 am to 3:15 pm, cell phone use is prohibited. Cell phones are to be turned off and kept in lockers or book bags. Students will not be allowed to carry cell phones on their person. If needed, phone history will be reviewed and discipline action may be taken based upon information gathered from the phone history. The school is not responsible for lost or stolen cell phones, electronics, etc. Students may report stolen items to the resource officer. During school hours, all phone needs should be handled in the front office. All students should obtain permission and sign-in prior to making a call. Please take care of logistical matters and other information at home prior to coming to school. Consequences for disobeying this rule will be as follows:

  • 1st offense: item confiscated and parent must pick up item from the office
  • 2nd offense: item confiscated and parent must pick up item from the office
  • Subsequent offenses may result in ISS or OSS
