DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Beginning in January, Xenia High School will implement a new policy requiring students’ cell phones to be out of sight during classes, the school announced Thursday.
The policy will take effect on 3 January, the first day after the winter break for students.
The school is making this change to help students be less distracted in class during class hours, according to a press release sent to student families by Principal David Torrence on Dec. 28.
In addition, students are also asked to leave their phones in class when they go to the toilet, the nurse or the main office.
Students will still be able to use their phones during study halls, lunch breaks and between classes, the release states.
Families are encouraged not to text or call their student during the school day, but instead to contact the main office if necessary.
