Due to the liability issues – We are not to take phone calls, text messages, etc. from parents to change regular afternoon mode of transportation. THE CHILD MUST HAVE A NOTE from parent TO GO FROM CAR RIDER TO BUS RIDER AND FROM BUS RIDER TO CAR RIDER.
We ALSO must have a note from parent if place of drop off changes on the bus. The note MUST be signed by teacher and sent to office to be signed by Principal or Asst. Principal. The bus driver will NOT drop a student off at any place other than regular place of drop off without a note with proper signatures. If a student is in grades 6-12 the note only needs to be signed by Principal or Asst. Principal – not teacher.
No student shall have in his/her possession, use or operate any electronic telecommunication devices, including any facsimile system, radio paging system, mobile telephone paging system (cell phones and camera phones), intercom or electro-mechanical paging system in any elementary or secondary school building, or on the grounds thereof, or in any school bus used to transport public school students, unless authorized by the principal of school designee.
CELL-PHONE VIOLATIONS (REVISED: JUNE, 2016)
1st Offense: Confiscation of the device and returned to parent.
2nd Offense: Confiscation of the device and returned to the parent after a 9 weeks period with a one day suspension
3rd Offense: Confiscation of the device and returned to the parent at the end of the 9 weeks period and a three day suspension.
Due to the number of calls we have received from parents of MHS about our students posting things on different social media sites during school hours we are requiring students to leave cell-phones in their vehicle, their locker, or at home. If a teacher is willing for them to leave their cell-phone in their room all day be advised that the teacher or school will not be held liable if the phone is damaged, lost, or stolen.
