Ilegal Cell Phones

As I've mentioned in previous posts, H is in Washington DC this week on a school trip.

A couple of weeks ago we had the obligatory parent/student/teacher meeting outlining all the rules of the road for the kids. Personally, I don't know how the five 8th grade teachers can muster up the energy to supervise 80+ 8th graders for five whole days. I shudder to think of it.

We were told they had to give up their cell phones every day and wouldn't get them until they returned to the hotel every night after dinner. So I was pleasantly surprised to get a few texts from her yesterday, from the Smithsonian, the Holocaust museum, the lawn between the Washington and Jefferson memorial. We felt like we were experiencing the trip with her, and thought the teachers must have relaxed a bit on the cell phone ban.

Got a phone call from her this morning. She won't be able to contact us at all today.

The teacher caught her using her cell phone yesterday.
