• Cell Phone Agreement



    Personal electronic devices are not to be used during the academic school day. Every student is assigned a personal Yondr Pouch. While the Yonder pouch is considered school property, it is the responsibility of each student to bring their pouch with them to school each day and to keep it in good working condition.


    The “academic school day” is defined as the start of the school day and throughout the day until the last hour/bell is over. Students are permitted to use cell phones only during the following times: before and after school hours outside or inside the school building and at after-school or sports activities, only with the permission of the coach, instructor, or program director.


    The purpose is to ensure that disruptions and interference of the instructional academic climate of the school does not occur. Text messages and photo transmissions are covered by the policy.


    Students who violate this policy shall face disciplinary action by the administration including confiscation of the cell phone or other type of electronic devices as outlined below.


    Daily Process


    As students arrive to school, they will:

    1. Turn off their cell phone, airpods/earbuds, and smart watch

    2. Place their phone, airpods/earbuds, and smart watch inside their Yondr pouch and lock it in front of school staff

    3. Store their pouch in their backpack for the day

    4. This process may take a few minutes. You are responsible for getting to class on time with a secured pouch.


    During the School Day:

    1. Keep your phone, airpods/earbuds, and smart watch inside your Yondr Pouch for the duration of the school day.

    2. If you leave school grounds for an appointment, or an HSC event, unlock your pouch upon leaving and lock it upon re-entry.

    3. You may not access your phone during the school day anywhere on school grounds unless you are leaving school grounds. *Students leaving early will unlock their phone in the Main Office.


    End of School Day:

    1. When your school day ends, unlock your pouch using the unlocking base.

    2. Remove your phone from your pouch.

    3. Securely close your empty pouch and place it in your backpack for the next day.

    4. Students are free to use their phones on school grounds after school ends at 3:05pm UNLESS you are required to attend after-school detention or credit recovery classes.

    Yondr Emergency Protocol


    We want our students to be engaged in their learning. Students are in possession of their phone, in their Yondr Pouch, for the entire school day. We will advise students to store the pouch in their backpacks where it is completely safe. In case of an emergency at home, parents or guardians can contact their child during the school day by calling the Main Office. If the Main Office is not available, parents/guardians may call the Guidance Office for assistance.
