‚ÄčAs of November 4, 2019, the government's new cell phone restrictions came into effect in schools.  The new restrictions vary little from our current policy and cell phone use in classrooms will be at the discretion of the teacher.  The board's expectations for cell phones are included in the student code of conduct, APM 7630, point 3.1.12, and read as follows:

All members of the school community must "respect the need of others to work in an environment that is conducive to learning and teaching, including ensuring that cellphones and other personal mobile devices are only used during instructional time for educational purposes (as directed by an educator), for health and medical purposes and/or to support special education needs".

As well, cell phones are not permitted on the school yard at recess.
