TRE Cell Phone Policy
CELL PHONES/SMART DEVICES: To ensure student safety and exposure to unmonitored internet contact directly, or through friends, cell/smartphone use is not allowed on school campus by students (including field trips). Cell phones and smartphones that must be stored in the owner’s backpack and powered “off” during the entire school day. Students are not permitted to keep their cell/smartphone in their pockets or desks, or otherwise “on their person” while at school. Smart devices such as watches are not to be used during school in any capacity that mimics a cell or smartphone.
Use of a watch or activity tracker is permissible. If students violate the cell phone policy or are found to have a smart device in their possession that is not stored and in the ’off’ position, it will be confiscated and held until a parent or guardian can pick it up.
Tustin Ranch is not responsible for items that have gone missing during school. While we are sympathetic to items that are missing please remember that it is our endeavor to focus as much time possible on refining our programs and instruction to maximize student achievement, and time taken to look for these items hinders these efforts. A licensed physician and surgeon may direct a student to use an electronic signaling device if carrying such a device is essential for the health of the student. Use of the device by the student is limited specifically to the health of that student.
If a student needs to call their parents they may call from the school office or classroom.
If a parent needs to give their child a message they may call the front office at (714)730-7580. We will be sure the student receives the message.
