Cell Phone/Electronic Device Policy
Students may bring their cell phones and communication devices to school and must have them turned off/silenced for the full school day and while on our campus. This includes before and after school. Students may not open or use their school-issued devices until the official start of the school day at 8:00 AM. Use of school-issued devices are not allowed after school while riding or being on GRCS or GRPS buses.
GRCMS reserves the right to confiscate any cell phone, communication device, or school-issued device when a student is not using it according to our guidelines, policy, and expectations. Any confiscated device must be picked up by a parent or guardian. Students who possess inappropriate material on electronic devices brought to school will be subject to disciplinary action. Students who repeatedly use their phones without permission will be subject to disciplinary action.
The school prohibits the use of any video or picture-taking device from any restroom, locker room, classroom, or other location where students and staff have a reasonable expectation of privacy. A student improperly using any device to take or transmit images or videos will face disciplinary action up to and including a ten-day suspension, loss of privileges, and may be recommended for expulsion. Taking or transmitting images during testing is prohibited. Students caught transmitting images or messages during testing will face disciplinary action.
