Cell Phone Use In Class

Dear South parents,


As teachers, we are working hard to support your students' learning.  We know you support it, too, so we're writing to ask for some help.


The district policy on cell phone use says that cell phones are not to be used during class time, except with teacher permission.  Many of us allow students to use phones for research and other academic purposes.  But we're finding that a lot of students resist putting away their phones when asked, or, if they do put them away, they get them out again soon after.


We'd like to remind you not to text or call your student during class time.  If there is an emergency, please call the school at 612-668-4300, and the office staff will contact your student's classroom.  If your contact with your student is not an emergency, please try to communicate during passing time or lunch.  Here is the regular bell schedule as a reminder:


Period 0                  7:20 am -   8:15 am

Breakfast                8:05 am -   8:25 am

Period 1                  8:30 am -   9:25 am

Period 2                  9:30 am - 10:25 am

Period 3                  10:30 am - 11:25 am

Period 4                  11:30 am -   1:00 pm

1st  Lunch                11:30 am – 11:58 am

2nd Lunch               12:00 pm – 12:28 pm        

3rd Lunch                12:30 pm –  1:00 pm        

Period 5                   1:05 pm -   2:00 pm

Thank you so much for your support.
