I have to agree with the mom about the cell phone ban. I understand that they are a disruption when used during school. However, I think it is a better policy to deal with those kids on a case by case basis instead of not allowing them at all. I require my daughter to call me upon arriving at school and then she is supposed to turn it off. I would not have a problem with her getting a detention for having her phone on and communicating with other students during school hours.
