Cell Phone Policy

Students do not need cell phones while on the school campus.  Student access to and use of cell phones while on campus too easily creates a distraction from learning.  All classrooms and the front office are equipped with phones should a student need to contact home or should a parent need to contact their child.  If a student’s parents insist that their child carry a cell phone to school, the cell phone must remain concealed and be turned to the off or silent position. 

Any cell phone that is seen or heard on campus during the school day will be confiscated and the student’s guardian will need to pick the cell phone up from the office between 8:00am and 4:00pm on days that school is in session.

School staff and the Alum Rock School District will not be responsible for any cell phone that is damaged, lost, or stolen.
