Prohibited Items on Campus

Parents/Guardians please be advised that the District is not responsible for students’ lost or stolen cell phones (L.A.U.S.D: Use of Cellular Phones by Students).  The primary purpose of school is learning, and items that distract from the instructional environment, or that are illegal, are prohibited.  These items include, but are not limited to:



  • MP3 players, IPods, cell phones, video games.
  • Tobacco products, alcohol, drugs, matches, lighters, other controlled substances or illegal paraphernalia.
  • Aerosol cans of any kind.
  • Permanent markers, spray paint, liquid paper/white out.
  • Firearms, knives, weapons of any kind or objects designed to harm.
  • Explosive devices of any kind.
  • Toys, stuffed animals, balloons, cards, or party supplies.
  • Large sums of money or valuable personal items are not to be brought to school.
  • Before a student enters the campus, cell phones must be put away and not visible.  They may be used after the school day has ended.  ALL ELECTRONIC ITEMS THAT ARE VISIBLE, AUDIBLE OR BEING USED FOR COMMUNICATION WILL BE CONFISCATED PENDING PARENT PICK UP.
  • Any items that cause a disruption to the learning environment, or pose a danger to student safety, are prohibited (cakes, cup cakes, candy, gum, monster drink etc.)



Any phones/prohibited items that are brought to school will be confiscated and held for pick-up on the last school day of the week by a parent or legal guardian.  Illegal items will be given to the police. Unclaimed items will be donated to charity at the end of each semester.


Repeated violation of school rules will be considered willful disobedience or defiance to school authority and can result in suspension and/or opportunity transfer.  Infractions that threaten the safety of personal well-being of any student or school employee can lead to suspension, citation, arrest, opportunity transfer, or recommendation for expulsion.
