Confiscated items may be held for the day or until the end of the semester, or they may be returned to a parent or guardian upon a conference with an administrator.
Parents are asked to PLEASE not call or text students during the school day.
It is distracting when a cell phone rings or pings during class. If parents need to contact a student, please call at lunch or during passing periods (see Bell Schedule), or call the Main Office at (510) 450-5400 and your student will be given a message.

Refusal to give a teacher, administrator or Security Officer a phone once it has been requested may result in suspension. Cell phones must not be used to tape incidents that occur on campus without the prior consent of all persons involved. Using a phone to record a fight will result in disciplinary actions.
