Cell Phones and Electronics

Cellphones and Electronics



We are in a technological age, and with the added benefits technology can bring, devices can lead to problems. Unfortunately, cell phones and text messaging create a new set of challenges for the classroom teacher. Students have used text messaging for harmless notes and contacting parents at work, as well as to tease and harass other students and pull dangerous pranks.


In general, electronic signaling devices, such as cell phones and smart watches, are not to be activated during instructional time. This interferes with students’ academics and face-to-face social time, and can cause unforeseen problems and privacy violations. It will remain up to the discretion of your child’s teacher if a personal device can be used within the classroom.

As with all electronic devices and toys, the school cannot be held responsible if items are lost or stolen. Cell phones and smart watches should be kept secure until the end of the instructional day.  Cell Phones must remain turned off during the school day and kept in the classroom in your child's back pack at all times.  Smart watches may be worn during the school day only if they DO NOT function independently as a recording or signaling device.  If a student needs to contact a parent or guardian, he/she will be given permission to use the school phone in the front office. Violations of this policy may result in student discipline, including confiscation of cell phones or other electronic devices until a parent can pick it up and or losing the privilege of bringing an electronic device to campus.

Please speak directly with your child’s teacher or call the office to speak to an administrator should you have any questions or concerns about this policy. We appreciate your support and cooperation!
