• Cell Phone / Smart Watch / Earbud Policy:

    All students will place their cell phone and smartwatch in the cell phone holder for the classroom in all classes. Phones/smartwatches should remain in the holder during the entire class period, even if the student goes to the restroom. If a student needs to use the phone during class time, the student should ask to use the phone in the front office. Students are allowed to use their phone before and after school and at lunch. If a student has their cell phone out at any time outside of lunch, they will have their phone confiscated until the end of the day. Students should not take their phone to the bathroom during class time.  Earbuds are not allowed to be worn at anytime of the day except for lunch.

    Any student that knowingly videos other students violating school policies will receive the same consequence as those students. For example, if a student videos other students vandalizing the bathroom, that student will receive the same consequence as the students that vandalized the bathroom.

    A teacher may allow students to use a cellphone in class for instructional purposes only.
