Electronics Policy

April 14, 2014 at 9:35 am

Due to a recent serious violation of the school’s electronics policy, all electronic devices, smart phones, iPods, gaming devices, etc. are suspended from use at any time on campus. This is in effect immediately, 04/10/2014, and will be discussed at the next SSC meeting to review the existing policy.

The violations include, but are not limited to, profanity, derogatory comments, pornography, and the use of images of other people without their knowledge, directly slanders some staff and students and indirectly slanders Daniel Pearl Magnet High School. Some of these tweets cross a legal line and could be prosecuted.

The policy is in place to cover ALL areas of DPMHS, and is from the hours of 7:30 am to 3:16 pm, except on Tuesdays, when the dismissal time is 1:37 pm. If a student needs to use a phone, they are to be sent to the front office for permission.

If an electronic device is seen, it is to be confiscated and turned in to the office. The device will be returned only to a parent or legal guardian.
