Cell Phones & Electronic Equipment
St. Joseph High School recognizes that cellular phones are a convenient way for parents to stay in touch with their children, especially when it comes to arranging rides to and from school. The use of cell phones during the school day especially in class is a distraction that compromises the integrity of an educational atmosphere, and will therefore not be tolerated. Cellular phones must be turned off during the school day. Any visible unauthorized cell phone use will result in an after school detention. If it continues, the detentions will be changed to Saturday Schools. Faculty may issue a grade of zero for an exam to any student visibly in possession of their cell phone during the exam.
Students are encouraged to leave all electronic items at home or locked in their school locker. St. Joseph HIGH SCHOOL is not responsible for lost or stolen items. Some teachers may at times allow the use of headphones with the laptop during class or study hall. Headphones, however may never be worn in ears or around the neck in the hallways. Any visible unauthorized electronic equipment will result in an after school detention. If it continues, the detentions will be changed to Saturday Schools.
