Cell phone use during a school-wide emergency does much more harm than good. Even a small amount of student calls could spark a panic among parents; the last thing a SWAT team needs is a rush of concerned parents blocking their way to the school. Any operating cell phone presents an even more extreme danger: the waves emitted by cell phones can set off bombs. Having all the students' cell phones on would certainly set one off.
