Some people think kids should NOT be allowed to have cellphones in school. I strongly disagree. In my opinion, I think kids should be able to bring a cellphone to school.
One reason why kids should bring cellphones to school is because it would help in case of an emergency that can happen in school. For example, there have been closing due to flooding, gas leaks, and snowstorms. The school sends out a message to all the families saying school is cancelled. The problem is that sometimes parents don’t get the message right away. They might be busy working and not hear the phone. If a kid had a cellphone he/she could call her parent till their parents pick up. I would hate being the last kid to get picked up in an emergency.
Another benefit to having cellphones in school is so kids can ask their parents to pick them up later. Maybe you have to help your teacher clean the classroom. Sometimes the art teacher tells me to stay after school to help her hang up art work. If I had a cellphone I could just call my mom instead of going to the office to call her.
Some schools don’t allow cellphones. In my opinion, it’s better to be safe than sorry. I think kids should be allowed to bring cellphones to school.
