Students are required to turn off their cell phones in the homeroom and put them in the classroom locker. This has made an incredible difference for teaching and learning and the social emotional health of our students. Please note our school handbook regarding cell phone use below:
CELL PHONE AND PERSONAL ELECTRONICS USAGE
The use of cell phones and other personal electronic devices is prohibited between the hours of 8:45 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. All cell phones and personal electronic devices must be turned off and locked in classroom phone lockers during school hours. These items are not allowed on school field trips. Teachers will confiscate these items and give them to office personnel if found.
Misuse of any electronic device when on school grounds or at school-sanctioned activities could result in disciplinary action, including a suspension (i.e. taking pictures or videos without permission of the subject).
