The parent may pick up the confiscated telecommunications device from the principal's office. Confiscated telecommunications devices that are not retrieved by the student or student's parents will be disposed of after the notice required by law [See policy FNCE in the Allen ISD Student Handbook]. The District will not be responsible for damaged, lost, or stolen telecommunications devices. Teachers may ask students to use their devices for instruction. Students are to follow teacher directions regarding the use of their device. Headsets are not permitted at school. However, earbuds may be used with teacher direction.
