    Your phone should be in your locker after the 9:00 bell,  not in your pocket. You are especially not to be on your phone during the school day. Using your cell phone in class is grounds for a referral and the confiscation of your cell phone by administration until a parent comes to school to pick it up.

    Headphones are also to be put away and not hanging  around your neck. It is not an option to wear them during the school day.

    Backpacks, totebags, or fanny packs of any type are also not to be worn during the school day as well. These are to stay in your locker until after 8th period.
