Cell Phone Procedures

LPS Student Code of Conduct  

Cell Phones

One of the areas listed in the Student Code of Conduct handbook speaks to the use of cell phones. You may refer to these rules on our LPS website under Board Policy JICDA.  While we appreciate the importance of communication between a parent and child and the assurance a cell phone provides, especially to students walking to/from school, cell phones should be regarded as emergency phones.  

If a child brings a cell phone to school, please understand that they bring it at their own risk for potential damage, loss or theft.  Also, the cell phone is to be kept in their backpack at all times only for use off school property. 

Students have the ability to use school phones if the need arises, (and cell phones are not to be the means by which a student contacts a parent of others during the school day.) This policy also applies to school buses which are also considered school property during the transportation of students. The use of a cell phone to take pictures on school property is strictly forbidden.

Classroom teachers have reviewed with students our Student Code of Conduct rules regarding this issue.  Unfortunately, if any student does not follow the rules as set before them, we will take their cell phone to the office and place a call to you so that you can pick up their phone.

Thank you for helping us enforce this policy so that our students are better able to focus their attention fully on learning and learning opportunities while at Franklin.
