Office telephones are available throughout the school day for emergencies, and before and after school and during Power Hour for students who need to call parents. Parents may also contact students through the office. Students must obtain a hall pass to use the office telephone. Family members needing to contact students during class time should contact the office, which in turn will get in touch with the student.
Due to the evolving nature of emerging technologies, additional rules and regulations may be added throughout the school year.
Any unauthorized activation or use gives administration a reasonable basis to take the phone for the balance of the day (at a minimum) and to view the last activity, including texts or browser visits to see if there has been a related discipline violation (such as cheating; taking pictures; inappropriate website visits, etc.).
