Many students around the globe including RHS are more addicted to their phones nowadays than ever before. There is no doubt that each day kids are starting to get on devices more and more.

Multiple families like to rely on cellular devices to get them places, to keep schedules organized, and/or contact their children. 

When kids have phones on them it makes contacting their parents more accessible, if something is going on or if they just need something in general.

RHS Sophomore Logan Lampe stated,“Yes you should be able to have them in class not to use them all the time but you should be able to have some time on them.”
