At my old school, West Philly Highwe could bring our cell phones in the building during the day but, they had to be in our locker. We had dress down day jus so we could feel like our individual selves. They didn’t have a lot of strict rules but, they did enforce the rules they set in place.

With people always talking over the loud speaker both the teachers and students complain that they can’t focus on their school work. All announcements should be made in the morning during advisory this way more work can be done.

Some people like me have small children that are in daycare and I need my phone in case of an emergency. Giving the daycare provider the school’s main number in case of an emergency I need direction...
