CELL PHONE EXPECTATIONS

All GLA Parents and families are expected to adhere to the GLA Cell Phone policy that is outlined in our handbook. Scholars are NOT permitted to keep cell phones with them during the school day, even if they are turned off. All scholars are required to turn cell phones in to their homeroom teachers who house them in bins that are locked up. Scholars who fail to adhere to this policy will have their cell phones confiscated and they will not be returned without a formal parent meeting. We thank you for your support of our efforts to keep scholars safe.
