At F.S. Edmonds, we understand the importance of students having cell phones to safely walk to and from school. However, we ask that you please remind your student of the importance of focusing on school while they are in class. Cell phones present a distraction to students and we ask that you do your part by not calling or texting your student during the school day. If you choose to send your child to school with an electronic device, all students will be required to turn it in to be stored for the remainder of the school day. F.S. Edmonds staff are not responsible for lost or stolen cell phones.
Students who refuse to turn in their cell phone and are caught with a cell phone will have their phone taken by school staff.
a. For a first offense, phones are returned at the end of the school day.
b. A second offense results in the phone being taken and only returned when a parent comes into the school to pick it up.
c. A third and fourth offense results in the phone being taken and only returned when a parent comes into the school to pick it up AND meet with the Principal.
d. A fifth offense results in the phone remaining in the school’s possession until the end of the week AND a mandatory meeting with the Principal.
e. A sixth offense results in the phone remaining in the school’s possession until the end of the month AND a mandatory meeting with the Principal.
f. Further offenses may result in the phone be taken and not returned until the end of the school year.
g. Other disciplinary action may occur as directed by the Principal.
