Students should be allowed to carry their cell phones with them at school. There are many reasons why students should carry their cell phone.

The biggest reason students should be able to carry cell phones is because the phones have internet. If they need to look up something really quickly, they can. If students have extra time in a class period and they want to look up their grades, they can. If students do not know what a word means, they can pull out their cell phone and look it up.

The next reason is for safety. If students are in the school and they see a fire, they can pull out their phone and call the fire department. If students see an odd person just walking around the school, they can call the police. If someone is bullying them, the can call the office or even a teacher to come and stop the bully.

The last reason students should be allowed to carry their phone around is to call their parents. If they forgot their ID and lanyard at home, instead of getting a detention, students can call their parents to bring it in for them. If they get sick, they can call their parents to come and get them. Last, if a student forgot to bring their bag for practice after school, they can call their parents and have them bring it in.

There are many schools that allow students to carry their phones with them during the day. For example, a high school in New York allows students to have a cell phone on them at all times.

Schools should allow students to carry their cell phones around with them during the school day. Phones have internet to look up information, they can call for safety, and they can call home if they need anything that they forgot.
