WFMS Cell Phone Policy:

Electronic devices including cell phones must be turned off and not used during the school day.  Phones and all other electronic devices are to be placed in a student’s locked locker.  They are not permitted, in any way, to disrupt the educational setting of the school.  Students are not to use their phones to make phone calls, send and receive text, access the internet, capture videos and/or pictures, or post on any social media site during the school day.  Students should not be using a smart watch in any of the manners provided above, and should not be wearing air pods or wireless earbuds as those will also fall under this policy.  If parents need to contact their student during the school day, they will need to call the office.  It is understood that students and parents may find it easier to contact one another via cell phone, but doing so encourages students to disregard expectations.  If a student is found to be using an electronic device, the following steps will be taken;

  • 1st offense: The device is turned in to the office, a minor referral will be issued, and the item will be returned to the student at the end of the day.

  • 2nd offense: The device is turned in to the office, a major referral will be issued, and the item must be picked up by a parent/guardian.  The student will receive 3 days of structured lunch.

  • 3rd offense: The item is turned in to the office, a major referral will be issued, and the item will be returned to the student after a conference between the parents and an administrator.  The student will receive 1 day of ISS.

  • 4th offense or refusal to remit device to school authority will result in 1 day of OSS.  Students’ off-campus conduct that might reasonably be expected to cause disruption in the school may be prohibited or disciplined.  This includes blogs and social media postings, group messages, or anything created for the purpose of inviting others to indulge in disruptive and hateful conduct towards a student or staff member.
