Cell Phone Policy

Dear Parents/Families,

As you may or may not be aware, the Mayor and Chancellor have changed the official policy on cell phones in schools.  As part of this new policy, the DOE has directed schools to set forth their own policy as to when and where cell phones and other personal electronic devices may or may not be used during the school day.

In Effect as of Monday, March 16, 2015:

Cell phones are for emergency use only.  An emergency constitutes the need for medical. Police or fire department intervention.

Phones should not be seen or heard in school.  This includes timers, alarms and any other electronic noise.

Field trip use of electronic devices will be based on teacher/administration discretion.

PS 279 and the DOE are not responsible for lost or damaged phones or other electronic devices.  They are brought to school at the risk of the owner.

Students will not be permitted to use phones or other electronic devices during lunch, recess or when using the restrooms.

Electronic devices can be used during the school day or during after-school activities only when directly supervised by a school staff member.

Confiscation and return of electronic devices

Students using a cell phone or other electronic devices in violation of the above stipulations are subject to:

First Offense:                        Confiscation of item and return at the end of school day.

Second Offense:                  Confiscation of item and return following parent / guardian conference to be scheduled no earlier than one week from the date of confiscation.

Third Offense:                      Revocation of privilege to bring any electronic device to school for the reminder of the school year.
