Digital Media Devices (DMD) including Cell Phones

Dear Parents,

We wanted you to be aware of a procedure that has been approved by the Majestic Community

Council, Safety Committee and PTA representatives. The use of digital media devices (DMD) is often

disruptive to a positive learning environment and may infringe on the privacy and rights of others. In

order to maximize a positive learning environment at Majestic Elementary the following procedures

concerning the use of DMD will apply.

• Student cell phones and music devices may only be used before and after school. They are not

to be seen, heard, or used during school hours.

• Misused electronic devices will be confiscated and available for parent or guardian pickup in

the office.

• Three offenses in a school year will lead to suspension.

• The office phone is available for students to contact parents in case of a school issue or

emergency.

• School personnel will not be held responsible for electronic devices that come up missing.

• School administration or designee may search digital media devices based on reasonable

suspicion that they may contain evidence of a violation of school/district rules or policy.

• School district policies and State and Federal laws regarding illegal content of electronic

devices will be enforced.

• Any exceptions to the above procedures must be approved by the principal.

Thank you for your support as we work together.
