Students and Teachers React to New Policies for Cell Phones, Hallways

by Abigail Hart, ’19

When the students of ELHS came back to school this fall, they were met with strict new school policies regarding phone usage and hall passes. 

When interviewed, student reactions to the policy changes were fairly similar. Students believe that the new policy is efficient but there are parts that need to be amended because they are, ironically, creating further distraction. Senior Avery Goulding said that the cell phone policy–not using phones during classes or in the halls–is a great idea, but the policy could be altered. “When I am required to keep my phone away, I just think about how I want to be on my phone, which is actually more distracting,” she said. “They should just let me take out my phone if I want to. The policy causes more work than it’s worth.”
