Parent Message to Students
If lunches or necessary school supplies are forgotten, parents may bring them to the school office and the student will be notified. Students will be given phone messages ONLY in case of an EMERGENCY. Parents should not contact students through cellphones or encourage students to contact them, as it disrupts the learning environment.
Students may bring cell phones to school; however, they must remain turned off and may not be used in the school building unless under the direction of a teacher or administrator. This includes before school, after school, and at all extracurricular activities. Exceptions to this rule include if the phone is included in a student’s Individual Education Program or if the phone is needed in an emergency that threatens the safety of students, staff, or other individuals. If a student needs to call a parent or guardian, he or she may do so in the main office with the permission of school staff. Failure to adhere to these guidelines may result in the phone being taken away from the student until a parent/guardian comes to the school to retrieve it. Further violations of this policy may result in additional consequences.
