When I was in school. Pagers (cell phone of the 90's) were not allowed in school. We weren't allowed to carry back packs except to home room and after the final bell. We were not allowed to wear Starter jackets either. Not sure why the jackets were barred, maybe fluffy coats could conceal a gun?
I see no reason a rule for cellphones like we had for backpacks and pagers couldn't work. Put it in locker when you arrive, take it out after final class, pretty simple.

When I was a high school teacher, I taught at a charter school, in Philly.
This school made discipline and academics the number one priority. The school administration gave no fucks when they disallowed iPhones turned on in school.
The phone was to be shut off and placed in the students locker. If a student was caught with a phone, or the phone in the locker went off, the student was given a suspension with warning...if it happened a 2nd time, the student was kicked out of school.
Working there was AWESOME, from a Discipline and academic stand point.

It's very practical. There's nothing stopping this rule from being a rule...only thing is lazy administrators. Some schools ban them, including a school I was teaching at.

I still don't get why the kids need them in the first place.
But yes, banning them in school is a realistic option

The oft repeated reason is emergencies.
Of course, emergencies have never happened at any time other than the past ten years since smart phones came about. How ever did we survive as a species?
Ban them. Easy-peasy. You get one warning. After that you're done. No exceptions. Don't like it? Tough shit.
