Electronic Device Policy

In December 2003, the Board of Education approved Board Policy H-6980, which allows that:

Electronic devices must be kept out of sight and turned off during the instructional program and in the classroom. Unauthorized use of these devices disrupts the instructional program and distracts from the learning environment. School officials, including classroom teachers, may take the device away from students if used during the times not permitted. Repeated unauthorized use of such devices may lead to disciplinary action. If such items are brought to school, they will be confiscated and the student who brought them will be subject to appropriate disciplinary action.

Parents will be required to pick up confiscated items from the front office.
 
Therefore, the below policy has been set forth by RMS:
 

Cell Phone Policy

       Cell phones may be used only before and after school. After the first bell and until dismissal (including lunch and passing periods), cell phones should be turned off and put away in backpacks or pockets.

       Cell phones that ring, vibrate, or are visible anywhere on school grounds during the school day may be confiscated by any staff member and will be turned in to Administration in the front office for safekeeping.

       Student will use school phone to notify parent that item has been confiscated.

       Parents will need to come to school to pick up the cell phone.
