Students are not permitted to use or carry cell phones, MP3 players, I-pods, CD/radio headsets, pagers or any other type of electronic equipment during school hours. (Use of cell phones for photography purposes or text messaging is prohibited.) While we realize that cell phones have become an important way for parents to keep in touch with their children, these items have no place in the classroom. They must be turned off and left in the student's bag, or with his or her teacher, during the school day. It is recommended that all electronic devices be left home, for the school cannot assume responsibility for lost or stolen personal property.
