Trinity High School recognizes that cellular phones and other wireless communication devices have become an important tool through which parents communicate with their children. Therefore, students are permitted to possess such devices on school property so long as the devices are not used, displayed or visible during instructional times.

In addition, these devices, if used in any way to facilitate academic cheating, shall result in appropriate academic sanctions and discipline pursuant to the Randolph County School System Parent/Student Handbook.
Any time students are allowed to use their electronic devices to listen to music, headphones must be used. No speaker systems, within the device or external, will be allowed.


  • FIRST OFFENSE: Verbal warning.
  • SECOND AND ALL FOLLOWING OFFENSES: Will be handled as Insubordination and/or Defiance of Authority. The teacher will make parent contact and refer the matter to an administrator.

Liability of Electronic Devices:

Trinity High School is not responsible for the theft, loss or damage of a cellular phone or other personal wireless communication device. Students are personally and solely responsible for the security of their wireless communication devices.

Search of Wireless Communication Device:

A student's wireless communication device and its contents, including, but not limited to, text messages and digital photos, may be searched whenever a school official has reason to believe the search will provide evidence that the student has violated or is violating a law, board policy, the Code of Student Conduct or a school rule.
