As per the Chancellor’s Regulations, cell phones, ipods, beepers and other communication and electronic devices are prohibited in school. We understand that students carry cell phones in order to communicate with parents during their travels to and from school. Once students arrive at school, cell phones must be turned completely off and locked in a locker. Dedicated e-Reader devices such as Kindles and Nooks may be brought to school, at the carrier’s risk.
If teachers see a cell phone, the phone will be confiscated. If a cell phone is confiscated by a teacher, it will be held and locked in a school office for one week. After one week, a family member may come to the office to pick up the phone.
It is the responsibility of parents to review these procedures with their children and it is the responsibility of students to ensure that their cell phones remain off and safely locked during the course of the day.
