Cell Phone Policy
The BPSD Governing Board may regulate the possession or use of an electronic signaling device. Students are not to use cell phones during the instructional day. Board Policy 5131 restricts the use of electronic signaling devices to before and/or after school hours only. Cell phones, pagers and other electronic devices shall remain off during school hours. (For complete policy, please see Ed Code 48901.5). This policy also applies to the Child Care programs and is supplemented by the condition that a violation of the student use of cell phones during the operation hours of school will result in the confiscation of the student’s phone.
- First offense - cell phone will be taken from the student and left in the office for student pickup after school.
- Second offense and thereafter - cell phone must be picked up by a parent.
Students who continually violate our policy will not be allowed to have a cell phone at school.
If you bring a phone to school, it is at your own risk. The school is not responsible for any loss or damage to a phone.
