Cell Phone And Personal Electronics Policy

 Cell Phone and Personal Electronics Policy


The school will follow the personal electronics (cell phone) policy (6415B).One key point: “Personally owned devices are brought to school and used by students at their own risk; the District accepts no responsibility for loss or damage to personally owned devices brought to school by students.”  Students will leave devices including cell phones at home or lock devices (cell phones) in lockers during the school day (9:20 – 4:10). Cell phones and electronic devices will not be used in the classroom, cafeteria, other common areas, lunch/recess, bathrooms or hallways.


We ask that families and students use the main office when communicating messages from home or school.    


Students using phones or electronic devices without authorization for the first time will be asked to surrender his/her phone to the teacher and can pick up the phone at the end of the day.  The second time the phone will need to be picked up by a parent/guardian in the main office. The third time there will be a meeting with administration to create a personal electronics plan/contact.
