Last year my oldest started high school and she was allowed to have her cell phone on during breaks and at lunch and she texted me all the time. I enjoyed keeping in touch with her and knowing what was going on. She was supposed to turn it off during class but she would just silence it, so if I sent her one asking about after school practice, she would reply to me at break time or lunch time. This year, she goes to a christian private school and they are not allowed to have them on at school at all. They all have their phones with them, but no texting or calling during school. If she needs something (like one time, she started her period and was staying after, so she needed stuff and was too embarassed to go to the nurse) she waited until after class and went into the bathroom and texted me and then put her phone back in her purse. She rarely does it now that she isnt allowed to but will if she is desperate. Its fine with me.
