must receive permission from a teacher or administrator to use a school phone
located in one of the offices. Parents who need to contact their child can call
the school and the message will be delivered. Exceptions for cell phone use may

and principals will confiscate cell phones if they ring are displayed, or used. Only parents with proper identification can claim the phone after
