sole discretion. E-Devices include devices used to communicate, receive, send, store, record
or listen to voice, text, digital, audio, video, photo, electronic or internet/cyberspace data,
images and/or information which shall include, but not be limited to, pagers, cellular phones,
iPods, Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs), MP3 players, laptops, portable music players, CD
players, game players, cameras, video cameras, GPS, etc. The school is not responsible for
lost or stolen E-Devices or any damage to the E-Device, its programs or its contents.
E-Devices may be carried by the students during the school day, but must be carried in
an off or silent mode. E-Devices shall not be used to connect to district electronic equipment
or district electronic networks at anytime. E-Devices may be used as follows:
- E-Devices may be used, viewed or listened to by students before or after school, during
passing periods or between classes, and during the student’s assigned lunch period in
the commons only at the table areas, but doing so shall be in violation of this policy if it
results in a disruption to the educational environment or any school activity or impairs
the morale or good conduct of other students.
- Students may use E-devices for listening purposes in the classroom at teacher discretion,
however, any other use will be prohibited in the classroom.
No camera or video-capable electronic device may be used in the locker rooms or restrooms at any time. Students violating the E-Device policy may subject their electronic device to the possibility of confiscation and search by administration in accordance with the law.
To comply with a request by the Lee’s Summit Police Department, absolutely ALL cellular phones, pagers, and any two-way communication devices MUST be turned off when an emergency lock-down, fire or tornado situation is announced.
