Cell Phone/Personal Electronic Devices

  • Thanks to the GCPS 1:1 device initiative, all students will have access to a device for academic purposes throughout the school day. Additionally, the BYOD network is turned off so no personal devices (cell phones, tablets, personal laptops, AirPods, etc.) will be needed or used at school. If a student brings a cell phone to school, it should be turned off and stored in their backpack throughout the school day. Students are responsible for the security of their cell phones. If a personal device of any kind is lost or stolen, the school is not responsible for restitution nor are we obligated to investigate.  If a student needs to contact home for any reason, they may do so from any office within the school.
    If a student’s cell phone is visible during class, a teacher will confiscate the cell phone, turn it in to the office, and contact the parent to make them aware of the situation.  The students may pick it up at the end of the school day.  Any subsequent offenses may result in an administrative consequence. For the safety and security of our students, cell phones are strictly prohibited from any restroom in the building. If evidence suggests a cell phone was used in a restroom, an administrative referral will be issued to the student.
