(WWSB) -- SARASOTA -- “It's really important for Ryan to carry a cell phone, that’s our way to communicate with him and also for my wife and I to pick him up,” said Brad Beles, a parent to an 8th grade student.
Beles says he wouldn’t be happy with a complete cell phone ban in the schools but he tells us he’s ok with it being banned from the classrooms. We caught up with other parents prior to the baskeball game between Sarasota Middle and Booker Middle. Raymond Morris is a parent to Bryant and his fraternal twin, both of whom are in the seventh grade.
“They shouldn’t be used in the school, I think they need to have them, the reason my children have them is because of all the possible emergencies,” said Morris.
