LOGAN, Utah (AP) -- The Logan School District is saying, "If you can't hear me, now, good."
The Board of Education adopted a new policy yesterday, forcing students and teachers to turn off their phones while in school.
District Personnel Director Myra Lynch says the policy is intended to cut down on disruptions during the school day.
The policy prohibits the use of cell phones -- including text messaging -- during classes throughout the district.
The policy is a little different at each grade level.
Elementary students are NOT allowed to use them, at all. Mount Logan Middle School students are allowed to have them, but have to limit use to before and after school.
Logan High School students can use their phones before and after school, between classes and during lunch periods.
