Is it legal for a high school to withhold a cell phone from

Resolved Question:

Is it legal for a high school to withhold a cell phone from a student past school hours?

There is nothing that precludes a school from implementing a policy that takes away cell phones for a prescribed period based on use violations. Of course, they may not retain the phone permanently and could be sued in a replevin action to seek its return should they attempt to do so.
