MHS Cell Phone Policy

In order to maintain a focused, safe learning environment, The Mott Hall School has established the following guidelines for cell phone use by students:

  • Cell phones may not be used by students at any time while in the building. 
  • Parents/families who wish to contact their student should do so by reaching out to our Main Office: (929)506-2695.
  • Cell phones wil be collected during first period and are returned to students during Checkout.

If a student is seen using their device, the following steps will be taken:

  1. First time - Cell phone is taken away for the day and returned to the student after a conversation with our Dean/Admin.
  2. Second time - Cell phone is taken away and students receive a call home. Device is returned to the student at the end of the day.
  3. Third time - Cell phone is taken away and student parent/guardian must come to the school for a meeting and to collect their cell phone.
