Cell phones and personal electronics are allowed on school buses. However, students are asked to please be respectful and responsible when using their phones and other devices. Headphones or earbuds are required when listening to music or videos as to not distract the driver or disrupt other students. Absolutely no flash or bright lights are allowed - this is a major safety issue for the driver. All school and district policies and procedures relating to personal electronic devices also apply while students are on the bus.
