Cell Phone Policy in the Classroom
Upon entering the classroom, you (the student) are required to silence your cell phone. You can either place your phone inside your backpack or in a pocket of the Classroom Pocket Chart -- this is your choice.
You may use the power strip on top of the counter to charge your phone during class as long as it is silenced. However, you may NOT get your phone and charging cord from the charging area until the end of class. (Sorry, but I do not provide charging cords or cubes.)
If your phone is in the Classroom Pocket Chart, you may retrieve your phone 2 minutes before the end of class or with teacher permission.
Everyone does this -- there are no exceptions!
You may keep your phone in your backpack if you choose -- NOT in a pocket on your body, NOT on your desktop, NOT under your leg. If I see your phone during class, I will take it up. Consider this your warning.
Consequences for Unauthorized Cell Phone Use
If you choose to use or take out your phone during class, these are the consequences:
** Per Huffman ISD’s BYOD Policy: Your cell phone is not a required supply for school. Bringing your personal device to school is your choice. Mrs. Kelly and Huffman ISD are not responsible for any lost, damaged or stolen personal devices. **
