We are having problems with cell phones and IPod Touches in classrooms. Students are texting and taking pictures during class time. Currently, cell phones are to be kept in the office and picked up at 3 o’clock and IPod Touches are only to be used in the morning before classes, at lunch and after school. I am trying very hard not to ban these items from school, however, the continued misuse by our students despite numerous warnings is increasing on a daily basis. This will be the final notice to students and parents regarding this issue. If students do not adhere to this policy cell phones, blackberries, smart phones, IPod touches, DS systems and any other communication devices will be banned from school . If this ban takes place, students found with the above mentioned devices will have the device kept in the office until a parent can pick it up. Hopefully, we will not have to implement this ban and students will adhere to the guidelines set forth by the school. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
