Board Policy: AR 5114.11 Students in Grades K-6 will not be allowed to carry cell phones and/or pagers at school, with two exceptions:

• Doctor’s Request: It is determined by a licensed physician or surgeon to be essential for the student’s health. These students shall have a written plan including the doctor’s written verification for cell phone use which has been approved by the school administrator and which is on file in the school office.

• Administrator’s Discretion: Site administrators also may give a student written approval to have a cell phone and/or pager at school for special circumstances, including health related circumstances, based on a parent/guardian’s written request. A copy of this written approval must be kept on file in the school’s office. The principal will also keep a master list of students who have permission to carry a cell phone.

Elementary students who carry cell phones/pagers under the above two exceptions must adhere to the following unless modified by their written approval plan:
