Q: Is my child allowed to carry a cell phone?

The possession and use of cell phones by students at the intermediate school level are to be used in emergency situations and not merely for convenience. As such, they are subject to the following rules: 1) A parent must register his/her child’s cell phone with the school by completing and signing the “Cell Phone Use Agreement” form. 2) The cell phone is not for use during the school day and must be kept in the student’s backpack (not desk) from the start of the school day until the student leaves school property. During this time, the cell phone must be turned OFF (no tone or vibrating functions should be on). A student’s school day starts the moment the child enters the building.  3) Games, cameras, text-messaging, and any other add-on devices for cell phones are not to be used during the school day and on field trips.
 
Violation guidelines will be provided with the agreement form (as outlined above).
