Canadian Martyrs Cell Phone Expectations

CELL PHONE EXPECTATIONS

Students are not allowed to use their cell phones in the playground, or in the school at any time, except when the teacher gives them permission to be used as calculators, or for research or music – students must be supervised by that teacher when permission is granted.
If students are caught with the phone out in plain sight (whether it is on or not) staff will take the phone away and bring it to the office (or have the student bring it down after letting the office know they are on their way). Student names will be recorded on the list in the office and the following consequences will be applied.
1. On the first offense, the phone will be in the office for the remainder of the day.
2. On the second offense, the student will be required to drop the phone in the office in the morning for a week.
3. On the third offense, the student will be required to drop the phone in the office for a month.
4. On the fourth offense, the student will be required to drop the phone in the office for two months.
5. If the student is caught with the phone beyond that, they will be required to turn it into the office each morning for the remainder of the school year .
NOTE: If students are caught using their phone in inappropriate ways (taking photos, cyberbullying, etc.) the consequences will be more severe.
