Student Cell Phone Policy

FROM PRINCIPAL STEINBERG Students who bring a cell phone to school must leave it in their back pack. Student phones may never be taken out during the school day. If a teacher or campus supervisor sees a phone out during the school day --including at recess or at lunch-- they will take it from the student and bring it to the office. A student phone brought to the office may be picked up only by the student's parent.
