STUDENT CELL PHONE POLICY
Cell phones are a distraction to the learning environment. Therefore, cell phones must be turned off and kept in backpacks (not in the pockets of clothing) at all times. If cell phone is visible, it will result in the phone being confiscated by school personnel. Parents will be required to come to the school to pick up the cell phone. Smart watches are not to be used as communication devices while on campus. Wireless earbud accessories are also prohibited.
Any student, educator, parent or member of the public can report school safety concerns directly to law enforcement and school administrators anonymously and easily through the FortifyFL app or www.getfortifyfl.com.
The Florida Legislature directed this tool’s development in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act.
The app, which is available for download on Apple and Android mobile devices, is critical to ensuring all Florida schools are safe environments where students and educators can experience and share the joy of learning without fear.
Low Cost Internet
Families who qualify for free/reduced lunch also qualify for low cost internet services from Comcast. Visit the link below for more information:
