The misuse of cell phones in the school can be cause for concern. Following are some of the issues that can occur:
At Thorsby Junior Senior High School, students are not to use cell phones during their classes unless the teacher gives permission to use it for instructional purposes. Students may use their phone before classes, at breaks, at lunch time and after school.
Action taken if a student violates this policy:
Students using their cell phones during class time will be asked to put them away. If they continue to use their cell phones, the teacher will treat this as defiance and it will become a discipline issue. Parents will be notified of the their child’s cell phone infractions.
Continuation of Cell Phone Offenses: Student may be suspended from attending school classes for defiance.
Inappropriate use of cell phones may lead to detentions, suspensions, expulsions and/or RCMP involvement.
