Revised September 30, 2021

Approved October 21, 2021

•    Students are permitted to bring cell phones to school under certain specific conditions.
•    The cell phone must remain off and placed in students’ back packs. If parents must communicate with their children during the school day, they must contact the main office.  Parents are asked to use discretion on the information given to their children during the school day. 
•    The cell phones may not be turned on during fire drills or other emergency preparedness exercises.
•    Cell phones cannot be used during the administration of any school quiz, test or examination.
•    On the days of the State Wide Math and E.L.A. Exams, it is highly recommended that cell phones be kept home on those dates.
•    Cell phones may not be used in bathrooms.
•    Students who violate the school’s cell phone policy will be subject to discipline in accordance with the Citywide Discipline Code and school policy.  The principal/designee will confiscate the cell phone and contact the parents. The phone will then be returned to the parents/legal guardians.
•    The school must post a notice of its policy on the school’s website.
•    The Chancellor may waive portions or all of the regulation if the Chancellor determines it to be the best interest of the school system.
•    Our school assumes no responsibility for cell phones that are lost, stolen or damaged.
