New Electronics Policy
Cell phones, electronic games, iPods, iPads, mp3 players, digital cameras or any other electronic devices are not permitted inside the building during school hours.
Your student’s electronic device will be confiscated if seen bulging in pockets, waistband, or shirts by ANY staff member. It will not be given back to them until the last day of school, June 14th, 2022. There are no exceptions.
The policy is in effect due to the increased usage of cellphones during class time for non-instructional purposes. In addition, during PSSA Testing, the Pennsylvania Department of Education issues fines for cell phones and a student’s permanent testing scores can be negatively compromised.
1. First Occurrence – Be given a warning and will be able to pick-up their cell phones by the end of the day by a parent.
2. Second Occurrence – Cell phone will be stored and held for the year
