Former Mexico Middle School Principal To Oversee New Policy Banning Cell Phones At Moberly High School

The Moberly High School has added a new policy to its school handbook for the 2022-2023 school year that bans any use of a cell phone during the school day.

Moberly’s middle school already had the policy implemented.

The new policy says if a student has any electronic device in their possession, even they are not using it, they could have it confiscated and face even harsher punishments.

They must keep the devices in their lockers or cars.

The change comes after a special Board of Education meeting that was held May 24th, the same day as the school shooting in Uvalde, Texas.

Moberly’s new policy will give parents the option to call the front office if they need to send a message to their student.

Former Mexico Middle School principal Deb Haag just completed her first year as the principal at the Moberly High School.

Haag served as Mexico Middle School principal for nine years.
