I know of a school that on the first offense if you get caught with a phone in your possession (it can be in your locker) they take it for a month. They don't give it back for you to take home. They don't call your parents and give it to them. They take it for a month. AND if say...spring break happens to fall in that month...that week doesn't count and they still keep it. (So they dont give it back for the break then re-confiscate it).
Sorry for text errors. I'm on my phone.
What would you do about it? What do you think is an appropriate punishment? As a parent how would you address if the school did this and wouldn't let you come get the phone?
