Each student taking PE is assigned a locker and a lock provided by the school district. The student is NOT allowed to remove the lock from the locker room. The student is also NOT allowed to bring their own lock from home unless they have spoken with a PE teacher. Should a student misplace or lose their lock they will be charged a $20 fine to replace the lock.

It is also the student's responsibility to place ALL their personal belongings inside their locker while they are in class. Should their items not fit inside of their locker they need to see a PE teacher so that they can make arrangements to lock them up during their PE period. Items that have been left out in the locker room have been taken and not always recovered. Before going out to their PE class each student needs to make sure their lock is SECURELY placed on their locker.
