  • 3rd instance ­ Phone will be confiscated and will need to be picked up by parent/guardian AND the King will have to turn his phone in daily.  A bag check intervention will be implemented where the Young King will be required to voluntarily provide the phone or show that he has not brought a phone to school through a self­-search, noninvasive process.
