What's On Today

NEW CELL PHONE POLICY 9/22/14

CELL PHONES

Though students are permitted to carry their cell phones during the school day, use of cell phones is prohibited during school hours. All cell phones must be turned off and removed from visibility before the tardy bell rings each day and BEFORE entering their classroom at the beginning of the school day. Cell phones must remain off for the remainder of the school day and can be turned on once a student leaves the classroom after 3:00. Use of cell phones during the school day for any reason, without permission, will result in the cell phone being confiscated. Repeated behavior will result in the student receiving school consequences. Teachers may allow students to use electronic devices in the classroom for academic reasons. Students may not use their phones in the library. If a student is in the Administration Office or the Student Services building, they may not use their cell phone. Administration will contact parents if necessary and/or the student can request to use the phone in the office to contact their parent.

 

If a cell phone rings or vibrates during a class period, between classes, or during lunch, it will be confiscated. Forgetting to turn the cell phone off is not an acceptable excuse. If a student is going to bring a cell phone to school they are expected to be responsible for turning it off at the beginning of the school day. Students are not allowed to take photos or video. If students choose to do so, they will receive an electronic device violation and their phone will be confiscated. Once a cell phone is confiscated by a school employee, a parent or guardian must come to the school to pick the phone up after the first offense. Finally, by bringing a cell phone or other electronic device to Katherine Albiani Middle School, the student is assuming responsibility for that device. The school is not responsible for any lost or stolen cell phone or electronic device.

 

ELECTRONIC DEVICES/IPODS/CD PLAYERS/RADIOS/GAMBOY GAMES

iPods, iPads, CD players, radios, PSP, GameBoy, and/or DS devices and games must be turned off removed from visibility before the tardy bell rings each day and BEFORE entering their classroom at the beginning of the school day. These items are not permitted for use during school hours (including lunch). Students and their families accept full responsibility for the loss or theft of these devices when they are brought to school. If an iPod or any other electronic device is being used during school hours (including lunch), a parent or guardian must come to the school to pick the device up after the first offense. Students may not use their phones in the library. We encourage students to leave all electronic devices at home as these items are often lost or stolen at school. The school is not responsible for any lost or stolen electronic devices.
