Cell Phone Policy

MDUSD Cell Phone Policy

Taken from the Parent Information Packet (pg 47) which can be found on our GGE website and adapted for our use:

We recognize that cell phones have become a common tool for communication. However, they have also become a major distraction to the learning environment and are vulnerable to theft. We ask that you allow your child to carry a cell phone only if absolutely necessary. Students are allowed to carry cell phones to school. However, phones must be turned off and stored out of sight during school hours. Phones may not be used to talk, take pictures, play games, record or text during school hours, including recesses. The office will be keeping a log of phones taken by student.

First Infraction - Students will have their cell phone taken away and returned at the end of the day.

Second Infraction - Students will have their cell phone taken and locked up in the office until a parent can come to school to retrieve it.

Third Infraction - Students will no longer be allowed to bring a cell phone to school until a parent conference with the principal is held.

Please know in the event of an emergency parents or guardians can always call the office and we will gladly get the information to your child.
