PKMS Student Cell Phone/Electronic Device Guidelines 2019-2020

(8-26-2019)

 

  • All students’ electronic devices (including headphones/earbuds, etc.) must be turned off and stored in the student’s locker upon arrival to school (unless an alternate plan is authorized by the Principal).

     

  • Students may not use electronic devices (including headphones/earbuds, etc.) in the hallways or cafeteria during the school day. Devices may be retrieved after the dismissal announcements and used once students exit the building at the end of the school day.  The device may be used on the bus per the bus rules. 

     

  • Electronic devices may never be used in bathrooms or locker rooms.

     

  • Teachers will notify students when and how electronic devices may be used in their classrooms. Teachers will need to write passes for students to retrieve and return phones to the lockers after they have been used in class for instructional purposes.

     

  • If a student has an electronic device on or out during an unauthorized time, the teacher will tell the student to turn it off/return the phone to the locker.  Since this is a violation of the COB:
    • The teacher will then begin the referral process for unauthorized use of technology.  (Warning and review or re-teaching expectations)
    • The parent/guardian will be notified on the second violation and the student can serve a lunch detention. 
    • On the third violation, the teacher will contact the parents and call for an administrator or School Security Officer (SSO) to come collect the phone.  The phone will be locked in Mr. Evers office and the student may pick up the phone at the end of the school day.  (will need to coordinate with secretaries)
    • A fourth violation needs to be documented on a referral and submitted to the supervising administrator for the grade level.  The Assistant Principal will meet with the student and parents to discuss loss of privileges.

       

  • If the student does not comply with a teacher's initial request on any of the four violations, a referral should be submitted for defiance.  


PARENTS/GUARDIANS: Please Note—

Student devices must be kept off during the school day. If you have an emergency, call the front office and we will get the message to your student.


Students must comply with the PWCS Acceptable Use and internet Policy at all times.
