Use of Cell Phones, Electronics, Toys, and Games
Students are not allowed to use their electronics in the classroom, hallways, or stairwells. Students need to power down their electronics and place them in a designated area in the classroom. Electronics must remain off in classrooms and in transition between classes. In addition, students are not allowed to wear earbuds or headphones during the school day. The school will not be responsible for the loss, theft, or damage of electronic devices.
Students are allowed to use electronics in the cafeteria before and after school, as well as during lunch. During these times, students must abide by the Acceptable Usage Policy as set forth by the school.
Any violation of the above policy will result in the confiscation of the electronic device until the end of the day and a referral to the Dean of Students. Repeated violation of this policy will result in the confiscation of the device until a parent can come in to pick up the device; detention; surrender of the device to the Main Office; and/or other progressive discipline strategies.
School personnel may ask a student to surrender a device if the device rings or vibrates or is visible and not placed in the appropriate area designated by staff. Student refusal to surrender an electronic device will result in an automatic weekend detention, parent phone call, and the need to surrender all electronics to the Main Office upon arrival to school for a period of 30 days. A second instance of student refusal will result in an in-person parent conference and the need to surrender all electronics to the Main Office for the remainder of the school year.
All interactions between parents and students during the school day should be done through the Main Office. For emergencies, parents should notify the Main Office so that the office staff can take immediate and appropriate action.
High school students should bring their Chromebooks to class everyday. No exceptions to the above policy will be made if the student does not bring his or her Chromebook.
