Cell Phone Distractions

The Simplicity of Learning to Your Full Potential

Lexi Drosos, Fall 2016 J1 Student

You’re sitting in class with your cell phone lying within arms reach of you, when out of the corner of your eye, you see a text pop up from your best friend that you’re dying to take a quick peek at.

You subtly grab your phone, hoping your teacher won’t see you, promising yourself that you’re just going to answer that one text.

Next thing you know, you’re liking Beyonce’s latest Instagram post.

Distracted? I’d say so.

That is why the cell phone policy at Blue Valley is a reasonable standard that students should follow.

The basics of the rule are simple — students should only use their phones in class when instructed by their teachers, during passing periods and during Tiger Paws.

Students should follow the cell phone policy at BV so that they can practicescreen-shot-2016-11-28-at-9-07-42-am self-discipline, make good use of their time and ultimately learn to their full potential.

Cell phones are a huge part of our everyday lives. It is necessary for us to distinguish what times are appropriate to use our phones. The BV cell phone policy is a good way to practice self control so you won’t be wishing you were listening to that chemistry lecture when you can’t do your homework later.

Making good use of your time is correlated with extensive cell phone use. It’s important to focus your time in school on school related work rather than be distracted by social media.

Learn to your full potential by following the cell phone policy at BV.

Your learning career will be changed forever.

No more low test grades.

You’ll be thanking yourself when you get a perfect score on the ACT.
