My sons phone went off in class. The teacher demanded that he give the phone to her. He said no because he didn't want them to take his phone and for me to have to come pick it up
The phone was in his backpack when it rang so he wasn't even using it or anything he thought he had turned it on silent.
When he refused she sent him to the principal and he still wouldnt give it up so he is suspended for 2 days.
I think the punishment is pretty extreme...yes his phone shouldn't have gone off but it wasn't like he was using it. If they didn't have their parent pick up policy it wouldn't have been as hard as he worked after school and needed his phone but I wouldn't have been able to get it until monday. All just a big stupid mess
ETA so I am not repeating myself over and over
My DS talked to both the teacher and the principal about the situation. He was willing to give them the phone until he found out a parent HAS to pick it up. He explained to them that he needed his phone for work and could not give it to them knowing he would not have it over the weekend
My DS is a grown adult we are talking about....he lives on his own in his own apartment. I think the parent policy is silly for an adult as there is no reason why he shouldnt be able to pick up his own phone.
He made his decision and he is dealing with the consequence
ETA2: he is required to have his phone for his work. He is in construction and must have it on him at all times at work
