Cell Phones

Cell phones ringing in or around classrooms are extremely disruptive to student learning. 

  • Cell phones must be securely put away in a backpack as the school and district are not responsible for any lost or stolen articles.
  • If a cell phone is used inappropriately it will be confiscated and our electronic violation policy will be in effect.

The Oakley Union Elementary School District reserves the right to search any cell phone brought to school and used anytime during the school day in violation of District Policy 5131, “Possession/Use of Cellular Phone and other Mobile Communication Devices.” Inappropriate verbal or text messages, pictures, or other material found on the phone may be grounds for disciplinary action.  “Inappropriate verbal or text messages, pictures or other materials” includes but is not limited to harassing statements or any communication that creates a hostile environment based on race, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, religion, or disability; discriminatory statements; sexual statements or pictures; and messages to organize activities that may cause harm to any student, involve drugs and/or alcohol, or that spreads false information about any other student or employee of the school district.”
