According to District Policy, all cell phones are required to be turned off and placed in the student's locker during the academic day. Any student who has their cell phone with them during academics will have their cell phone confiscated; their parents will be contacted to come into school to pick up the cell phone. A second cell phone issue will result in disciplinary consequences.

In recent weeks, the District has been made aware of situations of inappropriate use of social media and bullying. Students need to be responsible when using social media and its impact on others. Students violating these policies will be subject to appropriate disciplinary actions consistent with the Student Code of Conduct. Cyberbullying includes, but not limited to, terrorizing another student or staff member by way of any technological tool such as sending or posting inappropriate or derogatory e-mail messages, instant messages, text messages, digital pictures or images, or website postings.
