A third violation will result in confiscation of the device and may result in a suspension of up to three days. The device will be returned to the parent/guardian after the student serves his/her suspension. Scheduled school meeting times/dates pertaining to electronic device violations will be scheduled at the discretion of the administration. Students who use electronic devices to film and or record individuals for inappropriate reasons will be subject to disciplinary measures which may include a suspension of up to three days.
