Cell Phone Policy

For safety purposes, the district permits students to possess personal mobile telephones; however, these devices must remain turned off during the instructional day (8:20 am-3:50 pm), including during all testing, unless they are being used for approved instructional purposes. A student must have approval to possess other telecommunications devices such as netbooks, laptops, tablets, or other portable computers.

The use of mobile telephones or any device capable of capturing images is strictly prohibited in locker rooms or restroom areas while at school or at a school-related or school-sponsored event.

If a student uses a telecommunications device without authorization during the school day, the device will be confiscated.
