Cell Phone Policy

Emlen School Cell Phone Policy

September 2023

Dear Parents,

Please be advised that the School District’s policy states that cell phones are not permitted in school.  Cell phones should not be used during class, recess or visible at any time.

We understand that many parents allow their children to have cell phones for “emergency purposes” before and after school. If your child has a cell phone, please make sure that it is kept out of sight and stays on silent.  We ask that PARENTS  do not call or text  your child during the school day. Contact the Main Office should you have an emergency.

Cell phones that are taken the first time will be returned at the end of the day to the student, the second time it will only be returned to a parent.  The 3rd time a cell phone is taken, it will not be returned until the end of the school year.

Thank you for your continued support and feel free to contact me should you have any further questions.

Warm Regards,

Tammy Thomas, Principal
