Electronic Devices and Other Items

According to state law (Senate Bill 1253) and San Diego Unified School District policy, student possession and use of cellular phones, pagers and other electronic signaling devices on school campuses, at school-sponsored activities, and while under the supervision and control of school district employees is permitted under the following circumstances: all students may use these devices on campus before school begins and after school ends. However, these devices must be kept out of sight and turned off during the instructional program. Portable CD players, iPods, tape players, cameras, and electronic games are prohibited at all times. Unauthorized use of such devices disrupts the instructional program and distracts from the learning environment, and is therefore grounds for confiscation by any school official. Confiscated devices will be returned to the parent or guardian. Repeated unauthorized use of such devices may lead to disciplinary action. Clark Middle School is not responsible for lost or stolen items.

Leave toys, balloons, stuffed animals, and permanent markers at home.
