Electronics Policy

At ESA we are committed to fostering an environment where students are fully engaged in learning. Our Electronics Policy is essential to cultivating that environment. We understand the importance of parent-student communication, which is why our students are allowed and have always been allowed to bring their cell-phones into school, provided that they keep them turned off and put away during the school day. Students who need to use a phone during school hours from 9:25am-4:10pm can use the main office phone.

  • All electronics must be off and out of view between 9:25am and school-wide dismissal, with the exception of the lunch period. The electronics must also be off and out of view during study halls, passing periods, and free periods for seniors.
  • Any electronics visible and/or audible during school hours will be confiscated, given to a dean, and kept by the dean until a parent or guardian comes in to retrieve them.
  • If a student refuses to give the phone to a dean, the student will face disciplinary actions.
  • Unacceptable electronics are defined as:  Cellular Phones, iPods, iPads, Beats, and all other portable audio/video players, headphones, etc.
