PERSONAL CELL PHONES
TVUSD Board Policy 5131
Paloma is well-equipped with telephones, they are located in every classroom and in all office areas. We strongly encourage you to leave all personal cell phones at home, however, we also understand that the number of students carrying personal cell phones is increasing. If your child has a personal cell phone and brings it to school, it must remain inside his or her backpack for the duration of the school day, unless in use with approval by the classroom teacher. In permitting the possession of such devices, the District, the school site, its Administration and employees assume no liability for the loss or damage of the device or its misuse by another person. If a disruption occurs or a student uses any cellular phone or personal electronic device for improper activities, we will ask the student to turn off the device and/or confiscate it. If we find it necessary to confiscate a device, we will return it at the end of the school day.
STUDENT USE OF SCHOOL TELEPHONES
Students are not permitted to use school telephones unless in the event of an emergency or serious situation.
MESSAGES FOR STUDENTS or STAFF
Please communicate all important information to your student before you drop him or her off each day. Calls to the classroom disrupt the learning process and need to be limited at all times. In the event that an important message needs to be relayed to your child or your teacher, please call the office. We will write a note and relay it to your child so as not to disrupt classroom instruction. We also encourage you to use email to contact your child’s teacher.
