(TELEGRAPH) — Pottstown Middle School, a school in Pennsylvania, is banning the wearing of fuzzy open-top boots, including Uggs, because students have been stashing mobile phones in the footwear.

Starting today, the Philadelphia suburban district is implementing the ban to the middle-school classes, according to district director of community relations John Armato.

“Cell phones are a problem for obvious reasons,” Armato said.

Superintendent Reed Lindley said the school head asked for the boot ban “because of the classroom disruptions that are resulting from ringing cell phones.”
