Cell Phone Expectations
In the past we have had students use their cell phones during school hours (texting during class and texting and talking on the phone during lunch recess). According to district policy (see Parent Handbook), this is not allowed. The students have been told that their phones MUST be turned off and out of sight upon arrival to school.
We appreciate your help in supporting this district policy. If your child does not need a cell phone at school, please have him/her leave it at home. If you feel they DO need a cell phone at school, we will ask the students to label them with their names and turn them over to their classroom teacher every morning. The teacher will keep them in a secure location and the students will retrieve their phones at the end of the day.
Any child found with a cell phone on his/her person or in their book bag or backpack after the teacher has collected them will be referred to the office. We appreciate your help in this matter.
