New Cell Phone Policy

New Cell Phone Policy

Beginning on April 8, a new cell phone policy will go into effect at Helias.

Due to increased concerns and issues with cell phones arising during class time, the
administration has made the decision to require all cell phones to be put into a cell caddy
at the beginning of class and remain there until the end of the class period.

Teachers may still allow students to use phones for projects in class, but at all other
times the phones should be in their assigned spot.

The students will no longer be able to take their cell phones to the restrooms, assemblies
or mass.  Students will be able to use their phones between classes and before and after
school.

 

If there is an emergency and you need to contact your student, please call the office and
we will find them in their classroom.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation with this new policy.  It will improve the overall safety of our school and of our students.
