In my quest to get the scoop for the Lance readers, I asked Mr. Knoche if there was anything that the students of our school should be aware of. Unfortunately, he said yes. Late last week he dropped the bomb on me that the school will be installing cell phone jammers in all of the hallways. These jammers will block both Snapchat and TikTok—even on personal devices!! Obviously, I was very against this new information. Is that even legal??? After some further questioning, he informed me that yes, it is in fact legal, and the administrative team feels as if it has gotten to such a large problem that these cell phone jammers are necessary.
“Kids were distracted, and on their phones way too much in class. They can still text and email, which is all that is necessary on school grounds.”--Mr. Knoche
I am not sure what can be done about this new rule but thankfully it is not a forever sort of thing. The cell phone jammers are merely a trial run for a month, and Mr. Knoche and Mr. Stutting will decide what to do after that month. So buckle up and prepare! Get all your TikTok and Snapchat in before school starts because in the next week or so, you won’t be able to access them on school grounds.
NOTE: This here is an April Fools joke!
