Cell Phone Policy Reminders

CELL PHONE POLICY – same as last year and will be enforced by faculty and staff!

Classrooms are a NO CELL PHONE zone

Students must silence their phone and put their phones away upon entering a classroom and an instructional setting. Students may be instructed by teachers to put their phones in their backpack, on a teacher’s desk, or in individual student classroom cell phone pouches. If classrooms have individual cell phone pouches, you may be asked to put your phone into the pouch for the entire class period on a daily basis.

Phones are not to be used during the class period. If students are found in violation of this NO CELL PHONE zone policy, the following steps will be taken.

1. Teacher will provide a WARNING(s), and student will place the cell phone on the teacher’s desk or in a classroom bin/pouch.

2. Teacher will communicate with student’s family for support and then assign an after school, 1-hour detention, from 3-4 PM, in the afterschool detention room.

3. The teacher will complete a disciplinary referral in SchoolTool and document past violations, interventions, and communication with the family. Admins will do the following:

a. Families will be contacted for support and collaboration.

b. Students will be provided with research on how distracting cell phones have become in classrooms and instructional settings.

c. Students may receive a 2-hour detention and be instructed to turn in their phones to the main office each day or for select periods. Students may also lose their ability to use phones in school for days, weeks, or months depending on the infractions.

4. Students may face other disciplinary consequences like detentions, etc., depending on the interactions they have with staff and/or the level of infraction. We will also work with students and families on the topic of cell phone addiction and provide strategies to combat this growing issue.

Please note that students will still be able to carry their phones and use them appropriately during passing time, FLEX, free periods, and before/after school. If you need to speak to your child during the day, you can always call the BHS Main Office at 242-5000, ext. 0.
