Cell Phones and Devices

Students are strongly discouraged from bringing cell phones, smart watches and other communication devices to school. If a student must bring a phone or smart watch to school, the following rules apply.

  • Devices must be completely powered off during the school day.

  • Devices must not be used during school hours unless necessary explictly approved by a teacher for a class assignment or for a medically approved use such as monitoring vital signs or tracking fitness/health goals.

  • Teachers may collect and store devices.

  • Students may only use devices after dismissal. If there is an emergency, communication will come from the office.

  • Infractions will result in the loss of the privilege of bringing a device to school, and the student’s parents will be contacted to pick it up.

  • The school is not responsible for stolen/lost items.
