Student Cell Phone Policy 2022-2023

It is the school policy and expectation that all student cell phones and airpods are off and put away during school hours. Student cell phones and airpods should not be visible during the hours of 8:00 a.m and 2:20 p.m. If there is an emergency and you need to reach your child please contact the school directly and we will help you navigate the situation.  Please refrain from texting or calling the student’s cell phone during school hours.

Please read the steps that will be taken if a student does not follow the school’s policy:

  1. Students will be reminded, by all staff each day, to shut down their iphones/airpods and put them away.
  2. If the phone and/or the air pods are not put away, the teacher will make a phone call home and record it on the grade google log.
  3. After the second day, if the student is still not complying with the policy, the teacher will contact the dean.  The dean will confiscate the phone. 
  4. The student will receive lunch detention and the parent will then be asked to pick up the phone or airpods from the dean.

Thank You,

Mr. Gregory Rocco 

Assistant Principal of Operations and Discipline

Welcome to the 2022_2023 school year.  If you would like your child to receive a device this year, please fill out the survey below so that we may begin to hand out the technology early in the school year.  If you have questions or concerns, please email Ms. Bianna at BEpelbaum@schools.nyc.gov. As always, if needed, you may email Mr. Rocco as well at Grocco@schools.nyc.gov.
