It’s the end of summer vacation and students are going back to school, and superintendants across the area want to remind students what not to bring into their schools.

Dr. Steven Yager, Superintendant of the Southwest Allen County schools was unable to meet but wants to remind students anything that will not enhance the learning process should not be brought to schools.

In the East Allen County School Handbook it says:

Do not bring these items to school:

-Possession of tobacco, alcohol, or drugs

-Possession of explosives, knives or deadly weapons

-Cell phones should be turned off

Although these are the most common things seen in the handbook, there’s something else that students should be warned of.

Thieves have figured out that people put pass codes and personal information in the notes section of their phones, and are able to steal important personal information from stolen phones.

Michael Joyner, with the Fort Wayne Police Department, said don't do this there are other options to prevent stolen information.

"I would recommend if you continue to use this to invert some numbers so that anyone that should have access to your phone is not looking at the exact combination of your garage door opener," said Joyner.

Gabrielle Swihart, a 7th grader said both she and her friends put passwords in their phones to remember different combinations, and her dad is horrified.

"Yea I didn't know she had all those codes in her phone and I know children can be forgetful at times or their just not paying attention it would be real easy for someone to steal her phone from her, her brothers do it all the time to play video games,” said Alex Swihart.
