The office phone is primarily meant to be used only by office staff members. If a student is ill and would like to call home, he/she will need to ask an office staff member for permission to use the phone. Students DO NOT use classroom phones to call home for illness. Except in emergency situations, students will not be called out of the classroom to take a phone call. Cell phones must remain put away and cannot be used during class. If a student needs to call their parents, they must do so from the office phone.
