The cell phone is a handy device for necessary communications, but I do not believe it is essential for emergency contact for students. In fact, it serves to wrench control for such things from the school's administrative body, doesn't it? If nothing else, give the student an alpha-numeric pager. At least they can't call back until they gain permission to do so, thus involving authority.In fact, maybe we can get a law passed that makes people "check" their cell phones at every restaurant entrance in Kansas, so we can eat a meal without listening to some blithering idiot talking to their dog through their home answering machine. How about "licensed concealed communication devices...."
