Cell Phone Policy

Some of our children do have cellphones at school. They are not necessary to have during the school day however we understand that some parents like their children to have a cellphone to communicate with them after school. 
In order to avoid inappropriate use and prevent loss the following procedure is followed: 
  1. Cellphones are not to be used by children in the school between 8.30am and 3.00pm, and they are to be switched off.  Nor are they to be used on any school outings. 
  2. The school takes no responsibility for cell phones which may be lost, stolen or damaged.  Cellphones can be handed into the office each day for safe-keeping. 
  3. A cellphone found being used during school time will be confiscated and can be collected only by the named child’s parent. 
  4. If there is a need for urgent communication either from or to the school it must be done through the office.
