A local middle school decided to ban cellphones during school hours because the technology became a distraction, as well as a tool for cyberbullying and sharing of “explicit content.”
Starting March 1, the only electronic devices that students will be allowed to use between 8:25 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. at Collinsville Middle School are school-issued Chromebook computers. Cellphones will be required to be “completely out of sight” while students are in the building, according to a letter Principal Kimberly Jackson sent to parents.
There have been some instances of bullying and spreading of explicit messages between students, which Jackson said the school recognized as a trend among teens in general.
