Cell Phone Policy
At HMS we use a red light, yellow light, and green light visual system. I will let you know what color we are on.
Red Light: Phone should be in your backpack, not visible, & not taken out / This is during instructional time and if we are working with art
materials that could ruin your phone.
Yellow Light: You may have your phone face down on your desk - listening to music / This is during project time
Green Light: You may have your phone out / This is during different times - if your class has earned free time.
First offense with not following the light color will receive a verbal warning.
The second offense will lose cell phone privileges for a week and students will be asked to turn in their cell phones when they arrive to class each day. They will receive their phone back at the end of our class period.
The third offense student’s phone will be taken to the office and they will have it returned at the
end of the day.
