Cell Phone Policy is Back

By: Faith Parkhurst/Junior Writer 

The cell phone policy back at Blue Ridge in both the middle and high school. Many teachers are saying they would like their students to keep their phones in their locker or the cell phone holders provided in the classrooms.

The purpose of this rule is to get as many distractions away from students as much as possible, to keep students focus on school work, and to keep social media out of the classroom.

In an interview with Mr. Deck, the Student Resource Officer(SRO),  he had stated “The policy hasn’t changed. Students are still allowed to use their phones between classes and during lunch. However, if a student is supposed to be in class they can get in trouble for bringing their phones in the hallways. As for the cell phone holder, while all teachers have them and last year it was a rule, this year with COVID making things difficult to thoroughly clean, it is now up to teachers on whether or not they make their students use them. Also if a student needs to make an emergency text to someone that’s fine, as long as they ask their teacher first and that teacher is ok with it.”
