• It is important that students and parents recognize the importance of school and the use of instructional time. Disruption and interruptions must be kept to a minimum. Students are prohibited to operate electronic devices during instructional time without permission. Instructional time is when the bell rings to begin the class period until it rings to end the period, 1st through 8th period. Students cannot use their cell phones in the office areas without permission. Digital devices may be used by secondary students on campus outside the classroom (before school, lunch, after school and during the passing period) provided such use does not interfere with the educational process of the school. No student shall make any audio and/or video recording (including still photography) on a school campus or at a school activity without permission. The school is not responsible for unauthorized electronic devices when they are confiscated from students. 

    Violation of the electronic device policy will result in:

    1st Offense - Confiscation of the electronic device for the remainder of the day. The student can pick up the electronic device in the office at the end of the school day and sign a form stating they understand the handbook policy.

    2nd Offense - Confiscation of the electronic device for the remainder of the day. The parent will be required to pick up the electronic device at the end of the day and sign a form stating they understand the handbook policy.

    3rd Offense - Confiscation of the electronic device until the end of the next school day. The parent will be required to pick up the electronic device and sign a form stating they understand the handbook policy.

    4th Offense - Confiscation of the electronic device for 48 hours.  The parent will be required to pick it up at the end of the school day following the 48-hour period and sign a form stating they understand the handbook policy.

    5th Offense - Confiscation of the electronic device for 10 days. The parent will be required to pick up the electronic device at the end of the 10th day and sign a form stating they understand the handbook policy. The student will be assigned one day of ISS.

    6th Offense - Confiscation of the electronic device for 20 days. The parent will be required to pick up the electronic device at the end of the 20th day and sign a form stating they understand the handbook policy. The student will be assigned two days of ISS.

    7th Offense - Insubordination – Administrator discretion. .

    Note: Confiscated devices will be available for pick up only at the end of school days. Any confiscation occurring before two- or three-day weekends that will not be completed before the weekend will include the non-student attendance days. 

    On confiscations occurring before an extended break of 4 days or more (Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Spring Break) that will not be completed before the extended break begins, the cell phone will be returned at the beginning of the extended break with the understanding that the phone will be turned back into school administration immediately following the extended break to serve any remaining confiscation days.  Any exceptions to this will be granted only by the administrator.
