Cell Phone Policy
The privilege of bringing the phone is extended ONLY to provide a convenient way of allowing parent/child contact to and from school. If a parent needs to contact their child during the school day that contact is to be made through the Student Services Office at 215-455-6900 ext. 125 or ext. 128.
Before a cell phone can be brought to school it must be registered with the Assistant Principal for Student Services. The registration form describes the Cell Phone Policy and must be signed by both the student and the parent/guardian. Registration forms are obtained in the Student Services Office. Cell phones may not be used in school or on school grounds until after the 8th period dismissal. Phones must be turned off and kept in lockers during the school day.
If a phone is confiscated, 10 demerits for defiance will be issued and a detention assigned; if a phone is being used when confiscated, the consequence increases to 15 demerits and a detention. If a confiscated phone is found to be unregistered, the consequences increase to 25 demerits and a detention. The student must report to the Student Services Office to notify the parent of the policy violation; the phone will be returned to the student at the end of the day.
