Cell Phones

We appreciate your support as students get accustomed to the new cell phone policy. It takes an adjustment period but we will continue to keep the instructional focus in our classrooms and hallways.

Just as a reminder:

Cell phone use is prohibited in classrooms, hallways and restrooms. They must be stored or put away during the instructional day.

Cell phones are allowed to be used before 8:15 in the cafeteria AND during a student's assigned lunch period in the cafeteria.

● On the first offense and second offense, the telecommunications device shall be confiscated and then returned to the parent with a warning for the student/parent. The parent and student will sign the written warning.

● On the third offense (and incremental offenses thereafter), a $15 fine shall be required before the telecommunications device is returned. ○ A parent may elect to forgo the fine in place of an alternative deterrent.

■ If the fine is not paid, the student will be required to report to the front office to turn in their electronic device(s) each day for a period of five consecutive school days. The device(s) will be available for student retrieval at the conclusion of each school day for this situation only. All other confiscations must be retrieved by a parent and/or guardian.

Parking Passes

Students parking in the student parking lot will be required to have a parking pass. Students must bring $5, driver's license, picture of their license plate and proof of insurance to the front desk. Vehicles not displaying the pass may be towed.

ID Badges

Remember: Student will be required to wear ID badges. It is a campus security measure that are implementing this year. Most students have received their badge and lanyard. All should have them by early this week.
