Computer Electronic Device Policy

Devices deemed to be distracting to the educational environment by the RHS Administration are prohibited on campus. The school cannot be held responsible for the loss or theft of students’ private property. Students are strongly encouraged not to bring such devices to school. The use of cell phones and similar devices during instructional or class time (this includes when you are outside of class with permission with a pass for the office, restroom, etc.), is prohibited at Redlands High School. During class time, phones should NOT be used for any purpose (outgoing/incoming calls, text-messaging, calculating, picture taking, etc.). 

Laser Pointers are not allowed on campus or at school activities. There is a potential health hazard associated with the improper use of such laser pointer devices. The beam can damage vision if pointed directly into the eye. Serious injuries resulting in irreparable damage to the eye tissue may occur.

Teachers are asked to confiscate the laser and turn it in to the Security Office. Parents must come to pick up the item. A second offense will result in a 1 – 3 day suspension. A student who is pointing the beam directly into another person’s eye will be suspended on the first offense. A second offense of this nature will result in a 5–day suspension and a pre–expulsion hearing.

No pupil shall be prohibited from possession or using an electronic signaling device that is determined by a licensed physician or surgeon to be essential for the health of the pupil and use of which is limited for purposes related to the health of the pupil.
  2. The governing board of each school district shall take all steps it deems practical within existing resources to discourage pupils from possessing or using electronic signaling devices, except where the use of an electronic signaling device is essential for the health of a pupil.
