Cell Phones


Students are STRONGLY DISCOURAGED from bringing cell phones to school. In the event that families opt
to equip students with cell phones, the following rule applies: Per district procedure for elementary students, cell phones must remain powered off (not silent) and in backpacks while students are on school grounds.

All students may use cell phones on campus, only if needed to communicate with parents/guardians before school begins at 7:40 am and after school ends at 2:20 pm (11:30 am on Wednesday). Students may not use devices to play games, make web searches, take pictures or for any other purpose. These devices must be kept out of sight and turned off during the instructional program. Unauthorized use of such devices disrupts the instructional program and distracts from the learning environment. Therefore, unauthorized use is grounds for confiscation of device by school officials, including classroom teachers. Repeated unauthorized use of such devices may lead to disciplinary action. San Diego Unified School District and Hardy Elementary School assume NO LIABILITY for cell phones, or any other electronic equipment brought to school.
