Student Possession and Use of Cell Phone Policy
In order to accommodate the growing parental concerns about student safety while traveling to and from school, Pre-Cam Community School will allow students to possess cell phones provided the following rules are strictly adhered to:
THE USE (out-going calls, in-coming calls, text messaging, camera use, game-playing, or any other use) OF CELL PHONES ON SCHOOL PROPERTY BETWEEN 8:15 AM AND 3:35 PM IS STRICTLY PROHIBITED.
Such use will result in confiscation and possible out-of-school suspension and loss of cell phone privileges. Phones should be stored in student backpacks or given to their teacher (cell phones are to be turned off while in the student's possession at school).
If a phone goes off on school property or is used between the above mentioned hours you adhere to the consequences below:
First offense - cell phone will be confiscated and the student can pick up their phone at the end of the day from administration.
Second offense - cell phone will be confiscated and the parent can pick up their phone from administration.
Third offense - one day out of school suspension and the parent can pick up their phone from administration.
Fourth offense - three day out of school suspension and cell phone will be confiscated.
*Parents should continue to call the school for any emergency situation and we will contact your son/daughter.
Do not try to contact your child by cell phone.
It is permissible for students to use their cell phone outside of the school grounds at anytime; however, during class field trips students are bound by the rules of the school. Teachers may use discretion and on lengthy trips (out of town) allow students to use cell phones ONLY for parental contact.
At no time (during the school day) are students permitted to carry an exposed cell phone on their clothing.
The use of camera phones is strictly forbidden anywhere on school grounds. Such use may also be in violation of the criminal code.
*Pre-Cam Community School is not responsible for any lost or damaged cell phones.
