Creeden said the new policy was announced early in the summer so families and their children will have time to plan.

“I strongly encourage families to make communication plans this summer and discuss the plan openly as a family,” she said. “Our scholars will not have access to their cell phones during the school day.”

Besides being able to use their cell phones before the school day begins, students will be able to use them for after-school activities.

Creeden explained that the school’s offices will remain a resource to students and families.

“In the event you have an urgent matter, our office staff will get a message to your child or have him/her return your call,” she said. “If a scholar must call home, they should go to the main office to place a call.”

Cell phones used in violation of the policy will be collected, and a parent or guardian will be required to come to the school to pick up the device. Phones will not be handed back to a student after it is confiscated.

“We know we are better when we work to support one another,” Creeden said. “Our young people will be expected to engage with these expectations in positive ways and follow the guidelines we have outlined.”
