Passed by Council, 9 February 2001
Amended, 6 April 2001
Students, staff, and school visitors may have cellular phones and pagers on school property. The use of these devices must not interfere with academics or constitute a threat to health and safety.
Cell phones and pagers must be turned completely off during classes and in other places of learning such as resource rooms, the library, the Language Arts Lab, and the Computer Lab.
Cell phones and pagers should only be used in public spaces where students are allowed to congregate such as the atrium, the café, and the great outdoors.
Cell phones or pagers may be used in corridors; however, cell phone or pager users should be aware of the current handbook rule which states that “Behavior in corridors and foyers which disrupts instruction or harms the school’s generally positive atmosphere will not be permitted.
Cell phones and pagers must be turned to mute during any form of safety or emergency drill or procedure.
