Cell Phone Expectation
"Off and Away" is the student cell phone expectation at Highlands Middle School. This means that students must power down their phones and leave them securely locked in their lockers during the school day. When teachers need students to have phones for educational work in their classrooms, they will communicate this to the students before that class.
Students may NOT use cell phones in school without permission of the classroom teacher. Violations of this policy by a student shall result in the following disciplinary action and confiscation of the item:
First Violation - may be picked up at the end of the school day by the student.
Second Violation - must be picked up by a parent/guardian.
Third Violation or More - will be kept for the remainder of the semester and/or school year. Any disruption due to these devices will result in disciplinary action.
Items may be given to the front office for safe keeping during the school day. Students are responsible for their belongings at all times. The school district is not responsible for any loss or theft of items.
NOTE: If a student refuses to turn over a prohibited item, he/she will be immediately referred to a principal for disciplinary action.
