Cell Phone Policy
Current state law allows students to bring cell phones to school, with parental permission, for use during an emergency. District policy permits the use of Cell phones for emergencies only and their presence on school grounds will be allowed as long as students follow these guidelines:
1. Cell phones are to be turned off while on school grounds except for extreme emergencies. Extreme emergencies refer to life threatening situations where the school does not have other communication options available.
2. Cell phones are to be kept out of sight at all times while on the school campus. This includes before and after school. If a student fails to abide by these rules, he/she will lose the right to have a phone during school hours. If the parent states that a phone is required for after school reasons, the phone will be left in the office during school hours.
3. Cell phones are not to be used to call parents, friends, or relatives while on campus or in place of school phones except for extreme emergencies.
4. The school is not responsible for cell phones brought to school and will not be liable for damaged, destroyed or lost cell phones.
