Student Cell Phone Policy
**NEW AS OF 2022-2023 SCHOOL YEAR**
At Scobey Schools, we believe that learning the responsible use of technology has become an integral part of the education process. Scobey Schools is fortunate enough to be able to provide all the necessary electronics for students to be successful in school. Unfortunately, cell phones have become a major distraction to students' learning and success, and have created additional classroom management issues for our staff. For this reason cell phones will NOT be allowed in any classroom or learning environment at Scobey Schools. If students bring cellphones to school they are to remain in their lockers from 8:20-3:30 Monday-Thursday and 8:20-2:25 on Fridays. A great resource for why we are implementing a no cell phone policy can be found at https://www.awayfortheday.org/. Feel free to check it out.

We have had some updates to our exterior doors. All exterior doors are locked during the school day. Starting on September 19, when you come to the main entrance during
school hours, you will have to “ring” in to let our office staff know you are here. Please
press the button on the right side of the door to ring in. Once our office staff lets you in,
YOU MUST check in at the main office.
FOR 2022-2023 SCHOOL YEAR - STUDENTS IN GRADES 7-12 WILL NO LONGER BE ASSIGNED A 1:1 DEVICE OR ALLOWED TO TAKE DEVICES HOME.
