Student Handbook Cell Phone

Student Handbook

Cell phones are NOT to be used during class time between the hours of 8:40 am-3:30 pm. If a student possesses a cell phone in school, the phone must be placed in each teacher’s cell phone storage unit as they enter a classroom. The phone must be turned off or silenced and under no circumstances should a phone be used in a locker room or bathroom area at any time. At the end of the class period, the student may retrieve their phone from the storage container. Passing time as well as lunch time will be considered “open” for cell phone usage. Students caught receiving and/or sending calls or text messages in class who have not placed their phone in the storage unit will have their phone confiscated by the teacher and given to the Principal. By no means does the use of the device during passing time or lunch time overrule the District’s policy on acceptable use, harassment, cyber-bullying, cheating, or other policies set forth in the handbook. The Faulkton Area Schools is not responsible for the loss, theft, damage, or destruction of any cell phone, MP3 player, iPod, or other electronic devices that are brought to school.
