MHS Cell Phone Policy

The presence of cell phones can cause a major disruption during the school day and/or instructional time. Cell phones should not be used during class/instructional time unless the teacher gives the student permission to utilize the cell phone as a supportive resource at the teacher’s discretion. Cell phones must be on silent or vibrate mode during class/instructional time.

Students can utilize their cellphones in the hallways and in the cafeteria during their scheduled lunch time.
