H. Telephones/ Cell phones *It is important to discuss the following cell phone etiquette to your children before you allow them to have their own cell phones. Treat this moment as a learning opportunity for your children to grow as responsible members of a community. Some of the cell phone etiquette is noted below: 1. When in the classrooms, avoid loud and animated conversations by keeping your voice low or to a conversational level. Be sure to avoid extended calls. 2. Turn the cell phone ringer as low as possible to avoid disturbing others. 3. Turn your phone off or silence it. There are situations when a ringing cell phone is distracting, annoying and rude -class, meetings, assembly, for example, and other situations where people are resting and relaxing: libraries, the computer room etc. 4. Guard your availability. If you’re always available, people will expect to always be able to reach you at any time and any place. This will lead to frustration when they cannot get a hold of you. Respect your personal time and they will learn to respect it too. When they can reach you or you get back to them, it will make it seem more important. 5. Remember that the people you are with usually take priority over a phone call. Having a conversation in their presence can be viewed as being rude and make the person feel unimportant, and make you look bad. 6. If you have to make a call, make sure to take it to another location that will be less disruptive. 7. Focus on safety first. Do not use cellular phones when they impede your ability to walk. 8. Use caller ID, voice messages, or if you must have the phone on, get a vibrating battery or universal belt clip mechanism. If you have a camera phone: 9. Never take pictures of people without first asking their permission. 10. Don’t send picture messages before asking, because they are expensive and the person who receives the picture message has to pay for it. *etc. I. Parent /School Concerns: Parents are encouraged to exert effort to be aware of what is happening with their child in school.

Strict confidentiality should be observed
