LOCKERS & LOCKER ROOMS

Each student is assigned a hall and PE locker which should be kept neat and orderly at all times. It is important that combinations not be given out to others and that lockers be locked when not in use. Sharing lockers is not permitted. No one is permitted to use his/her locker during class periods without a pass from a teacher. Valuables should not be kept in your locker. Students who wish to have a locker combination changed must provide a valid reason for the request and may be assessed a $2.00 charge for such changes.

Lockers and desks are owned and controlled by the school for the use and benefit of students. School officials have the right to inspect student lockers and desks. In addition, school officials may conduct a search of individual lockers if there are reasonable grounds for suspecting that the search will turn up evidence that the student has violated either the law or the rules of the school. School officials may utilize the services of law enforcement to assist in determining if any illegal or controlled substances are located in an individual hall or PE locker.

Items seen as materially disrupting the educational process may not be posted or displayed in student lockers. These items include, but are not limited to, sexually explicit, nude or partially nude photographs, drawings, cartoons, and caricatures of male and female persons or depicting sexual activity; commonly profane or indecent words; items which promote the use of illegal drugs or controlled substances; items that contain gang affiliation, membership, graffiti or symbols; and other items which are disruptive to the school setting.
