Cell Phones and Other Electronic Devices:
It is the strong recommendation of the staff at Shorewood High School that students and parents carefully weigh whether or not a student brings personal cell phones, music players, cameras, and/or other electronic devices to school. These items can be disruptive to the learning environment, often create disciplinary problems, and are all too frequently damaged, lost or stolen.
If students do bring cell phones and/or other electronic devices to school, they are subject to the following policy guidelines:
Use of Electronic Devices at School:
- Cell phones and other electronic devices must be turned off and kept out of sight during class time. Parents are reminded that in cases of emergency, the main office is the appropriate point of contact to ensure that your child is contacted and assisted in a timely and appropriate manner.
- Cell phones, cameras, or other devices should not be used to photograph or film others without their consent.
Care for Electronic Devices:
- Students who bring cell phones or other electronic devices to school are solely responsible for the safety and security of those devices.
- The school accepts no responsibility for cell phones or other electronic devices that are lost, damaged, or stolen at, school or while traveling to and from school.
Process for Violation of Electronic Devices Policy:
Students who violate the rules for the use of electronic devices as set forth will be subject to corrective action as described below:
- First violation – warning, teacher confiscates device for the class period and may contact home.
- Second violation – device is confiscated and kept until the end of the day. Parent is contacted.
- Third violation – device is confiscated and must be picked up by a parent/guardian. Further discipline may apply.
School discipline may vary, depending on individual circumstance.
