Personal Electronics & Social Media

Personal electronic devices, including but not limited to phones, earbuds, headphones, tablets, and personal computers are to be TURNED OFF AND PUT AWAY during the school day. Unauthorized use and refusal to put a personal electronic device away will result in confiscation of the device. Students will receive one warning to put a device away before a teacher will ask for their device for the remainder of the class period. If the student refuses to give the device to the teacher, he or she will be sent to the office and the device will be confiscated for the remainder of the day. Parents may be asked to come to the school and pick up the device. If the student refuses to turn the device in at the office, this will result in an out-of-school suspension for the remainder of the day. Teachers may offer PBIS Points or other incentives for turning in electronics at the beginning of class time to encourage students to avoid the distraction during academic time. ALL electronics would need to be turned in for a student to receive one set amount of points or incentive.

Students may not charge their phones or other personal electronics in any manner at school (ie: wall socket, cart, through school electronic connection, etc.).

Students who routinely violate the electronics policy (five incidents or more) may be required to leave these items at home or to turn these devices in to staff at the beginning of every day for a two week period. ALL devices would need to be turned in to be in compliance with school expectations. Continued defiance of electronics policies may result in removal from school.

If listening to a device during breakfast or lunch, earbuds or headphones must be used. External speakers may not be used. All devices must be turned off and put away in the hallway and in classrooms. Use of devices is only allowed during lunch and breakfast. Students are responsible for securing their personal devices at school. The EVSC and HCPHS do not accept responsibility for any lost, stolen or damaged devices. Searches will NOT be conducted for missing personal items.
