Cell phones:  Cell phones must be docked immediately upon entering the classroom.  Cell phones will be used as permitted by teacher during some instructional lessons.  Abuse of cell phone privileges requires phone to be docked daily on teacher’s desk for 10 instructional days.  Students are not permitted to charge phones at any time.   

Bathrooms:  Students are expected to use the bathroom for emergencies only. Students may only use the HOSA bathrooms or designated bathrooms for Mrs. Codutti’s class! Do not abuse this privilege or it will be taken away.  No bathroom passes will be given in the first or last 10 minutes of each class.
