Cell Phone Policy

1. Helps increase safety for all students when not distracted by phone
2. Helps us be "present"
3. Ensures respect for people and places we encounter

Students who do not adhere to these rules…
will be given one warning per day
after warning, chaperones will take the cell phone for remainder of the day
phone will be returned at night upon arrival at the hotel.

Please note chaperones will always have cell phones with them at all times and can be reached by guardians should there ever be an emergency.

Go to bed whenever you want; BUT wake up times don’t change!

Curfew will be given. You’re in your own room at that time: NO EXCEPTIONS!
