Smart Devices and Cell Phones at Sara Collins

We understand that some children need to carry a cellphone, smartwatch, or other smart device for before and after school communication. However, students do not need them during the day. We have a “bell to bell – no cellphone” expectation.


The cell phone or smart device must be kept in your child’s backpack during school hours and/or while in the school building.



First offense: Verbal warning
Second offense: Parent phone call
Third Offense: Parent/Teacher Conference (administration attendance possible)
Fourth Offense: Disciplinary Referral

School Visitor and Volunteer Guidelines

Greenville County Schools (GCS), in an effort to ensure the safety of all of our students, is implementing additional security checks for school volunteers. Effective immediately, all volunteers must submit an application to the school and receive clearance from the district before interacting with children in the school or chaperoning any school field trip. Volunteers are now identified by two different categories: Level I or Level II. Please click here to review the details and find applications on the GCS website.
