Electronic Device1 Policy

The goal of this policy is to ensure that the use of cell phones and other electronic devices does not interrupt classes, and that the social health of the students is upheld and compatible with the school’s philosophy.

If a student is in violation of this policy, the electronic device will be taken and the student’s parent will need to pick it up at the end of the school day from the high school office.

The faculty reserves the right to stop a student’s electronic device, and/or to confiscate the device if it is deemed that it is being used inappropriately, excessively, or is not upholding the goals of this electronic device policy.
