Cell Phone & Device Policy

MMS Cell Phone Policy

Memorial Middle School students may use a telecommunications device [such as a cellular phone, wireless earbuds, or smart watches] on school grounds during non-instructional times, athletic events or other school-related activities or special events.

Non-instructional times are defined as:

  • before or after school
  • during lunch in the cafeteria
  • passing periods

Students are asked to secure phones in their backpacks -- not on their person (pockets) -- at all other times. When students enter the classroom, other telecommunications devices (ex. Apple watches) may be secured by the teacher (at teacher discretion).

Telecommunications devices must be set so that incoming calls, text messages, etc., shall not emit any audible sound, including vibration sound.

A staff member who discovers a student in violation of the policy during instructional times shall confiscate the telecommunications device and follow procedures as outlined in the Student-Parent Handbook.
