Cell Phone Policy

 

  • Students may not use cell phones at school between 8:00 am and 2:45 pm.
  • If students have to use their cell phone, they will do so in the front office with permission.
  • Cell phones will be either turned off or on "silent" during the school day.
  • If a teacher alows the student to use a cell phone for an educational purpose, the use is limited to that teacher at that time.
  • Cell phone use interrupts the learning environment.
  • Students who use their cell phone may be asked to go to the office.
  • Cell phones brought to the office will be confiscated.  A parent/guardian must pick up the cell phone after the school day.
  • When the cell phone is confiscated, the student will call home from the office to tell parent and to arrange for pick up.
  • Repeated use of a cell phone in school will result in disciplinary action.
  • At no time may a student take photos with their phone at school unless explicitly noted by administration.
  • All questions regarding cell phone use should be directed to an administrator. 
  • The contents of a cellular phone, camera, or other device may be searched to determine ownership, to identify emergency contacts, or upon reasonable suspicion that a school or District rule or the law has been violated.

 

 

   

Hanshew's Dress Code

Hanshew Middle School dress code will be enforced at all times.  Dress at school needs to be appropriate; it cannot be disruptive to learning, unsafe or gang related.  Dress that has writing or images related to alcohol, tobacco, other drugs, sex, or gangs is inappropriate.  The following are examples of inappropriate clothing:

 

  • Clothing that is too revealing, too small, see-through or sagging, exposed midriffs, low-cut tops or sides, strapless, spaghetti straps, less than 2-inch straps, short-shorts, short skirts (more than 2 inches above the top of a knee cap), or any combination of shorts and leggings, short skirt and leggings, short dress and leggings.
  • Clothing that is too large, baggy, or bulky.  Examples include: oversize jeans, oversize shirts.  Pants that are too big to stay up above the hipbones without a belt are too baggy.
  • Durng the snow season, avoid wearing flip-flops, sandals, with no socks or protective footwear.  This is a safety hazard that could cause frostbite during safety drills and evacuations.
  • Outerwear (coats, heavy jackets, heavy vests, hats, sunglasses) must be stored in the lockers.

 

Stuents who wear inappropriate clothing to school will be required to change into something appropriate.  This will be accomplished by having parents bring appropriate clothes to school, or exchanging for clothes provided by the school. Continued non-compliance offenses may be considered willful disobedience.  If you have any questions about the appropriateness of what your child intends to wear to school, please call 349-1561 and speak to the Assistant Principal.
