Cell Phones & Electronics
Cell phones, electronic tablets, iPods/MP3 players and any other electronic devices are prohibited from being used and/or charged during the school day. Electronic devices are to remain out of sight. These devices must be turned off before the beginning of first period class (7:19 am). The only time these devices may be used during the school day is during the lunch period. These devices may not be used at after school activities, unless permitted by the teacher with which the student is working.
Tablets and laptops may be used in the classroom for academic reasons, such as note taking, only at the discretion of the teacher.
Those students found using these devices, in any location of the school during any period other than lunch, can expect the following consequences:
Teacher or staff member is required to confiscate the device and may hold it or give it to the Dean of Students. The device will be returned after the final bell (1:41).
If a student refuses to turn in a device, then the student must meet with the Dean of Students and turn in the device for a period of three days or be suspended.
Teacher or staff member is required to confiscate the device and give it to the Dean of Students. The Dean of Students will take possession of the device for three days. To recover the device before the three day confiscation, a parent or guardian must come to the school and meet with the dean.
If a student is a repeat offender (three or more confiscations of any electronic device), then students will be required to turn in their electronic device(s) at the beginning of the school day to the Dean of Students and pick up the device(s) after the final bell (1:41).
