Beginning on January 3rd, the first day of semester 2, students will no longer be able to use their cell phones or electronic devices in the hallways, multipurpose room, or any other school areas between the hours of 8:00 AM and 2:45 PM. Teachers will remain in complete control of electronic device use in their classrooms.

 

We ask that you also discuss this huge change with your student to ensure a successful transition to the new policy. Please review the following information for consequences if students violate the policy that starts on January 3rd, 2022; we depend on your support for the successful implementation of this new policy:

 

For infractions in the hallway/MPR, we will use the following structure and use the updated electronic device spreadsheet and Q. to keep track of related behavior:

● 1st infraction: phone taken and returned by same staff to student.

● 2nd infraction: phone taken provided to administration for parent pickup.

● 3rd infraction: phone taken provided to administration for parent pickup + work detail.

● 4th infraction: phone taken provided to administration for parent pick up+In School Suspension (ISS).

● 5th infraction: phone taken provided to administration for parent pick up+ 2 ISS and mandatory meeting with administration for behavioral plan consideration.

 

Please call or email if you have any questions.
