Electronic Devices

Please leave video games devices, CD’s, cell-phones, iPod’s and MP3 players at home! They disrupt the educational environment. The school is not responsible for personal devices that are lost on campus. The best place to keep these devices is at home. If they must be brought to school, please keep them off and in your backpacks.

If a student must bring a cell phone — it is not to be carried into classrooms during assessments, semester exams, or other testing situations. Phones and all such devices shall be in the “off” position at all times and should be stored in the student’s locker or backpack while on school grounds, inside the school and during the school day. If a cell phone is visible it will be confiscated and a student/parent will have to claim it at the office. Ear buds are not allowed nor should be visible. (Administrative Regulation 5810).

We do understand the need for parents to be connected to their children throughout the day. If you must text or talk with your student during the school day, please call the office.

We follow this process for confiscated phones:

  • 1st Offense: Phone taken from the student and recorded, student can pick up phone after school.
  • 2nd Offense: Phone taken from the student recorded and parents are called and must pick –up the phone.
  • 3rd Offense: Phone taken from the students recorded and parents are called and must pick up the phone and the phone is no longer allowed on campus.
