Mobile devices are banned in New York City public schools, so some students pay one dollar per day to leave them in a truck parked outside.

Electronic devices such as cellphones, iPods and iPads, are banned in public schools in New York City. For those students who can’t bear to leave their phone at home, or need it to contact their parent at the end of the school day, there is a new kind of valet service on offer. Pure Loyalty LLC operates in the boroughs of the Bronx, Manhattan, and Queens, parking their trucks nearby on school days to let the students store their devices.
The Washington Post reports that the students can pay one dollar a day per device to leave it at one of the trucks in the morning, exchanging it for a numbered yellow ticket, and then come back later to pick it up after school.
