If parents need to get in touch with their child during class time, school officials say they can call the main office.

East High School in Rochester has approved a new ban on cell phones in class for the upcoming school year.

Under the new policy, all cell phones will be taken from students when they enter the building in the morning and returned at the end of the day.

If parents need to get in touch with their child during class time, school officials say they can call the main office.

Other schools in the Rochester City School District are not implementing this policy.
