CELL PHONES and ELECTRONIC DEVICES: Students are encouraged to leave electronic devices, including game systems, music players, and toys, at home. Personal cell phones (including headphones) are welcome at school during lunch and passing periods and during class time when used for instructional purposes under a teacher’s direction. Students who choose to bring these devices do so at their own risk; South Hills is not responsible for damage, theft, or loss. Any use of an electronic device that exploits personal information, disrupts the educational process, invades personal privacy or compromises the integrity of educational programs is strictly prohibited. The administration reserves the right to restrict a student’s use of electronic devices based on compliance with school rules. Violations, or any use the school deems improper, will result in confiscation of the device, which will then be taken to the attendance office. The following penalties apply if this policy is violated:
- 1st violation = Student can pick up device at the end of the school day
- 2nd violation = Student meets with administrator, phone call home, student can pick up the device at the end of school day.
- 3rd violation = Parent must pick up the device. Device may be confiscated for an extended period of time and/or parent meeting & student contract.
LOSS OF PERSONAL PROPERTY: Jordan School District and South Hills are not responsible for any personal property that is lost, stolen, or vandalized. There is no provision that allows payment for any personal item that is taken from a student enrolled in the Jordan School District.
NON-EDUCATIONAL ITEMS: Any personal item that has nothing to do with the educational process is not to be brought to school. Problems arise each year because students bring articles that are hazardous to the safety of others or interfere in some way with school. Items such as portable speakers, toys, laser pens, cameras, ropes, stink bombs, etc. are not allowed at school and will be confiscated. The school is not responsible for lost or stolen items, even if they are stored in hall or gym lockers.
SKATEBOARDS, BIKES, and SCOOTERS: Once a student is on school property they should walk or carry their skateboard, bike, scooter, etc. Otherwise it may be confiscated and a parent contacted to pick it up.
