Cell Phone Policy
While we recognize the capabilities and conveniences of personal electronic devices/cell phones, the devices in a middle school setting present several distractions, including the use of texting and social media during teaching/learning time. Our Office secretaries accept and delivers messages from home to students within the same class period. Students needing to contact home are allowed to come to the Student Office to access a phone.
School Board Policy 5136 governs the use of personal communication devices, and due to the access of school-provided communication between school and home, the expectation is that students keep their own devices powered off and stored in their locker during the school day (between 7:35 and 2:42). Failure to follow this policy will result in a school consequence as well as the device being taken away from the student until the end of the school day, when a parent or guardian must pick it up.
