     LOCKS, LOCKERS, VALUABLES

      Lockers will only be used during the PE period. 

    All locks must be removed at the end of the period.

     

    School issued locks must be used.

     

    They can be purchased for $5.00 during class.

     

     

      It is required that all valuables be locked in the locker. 

    We can’t be responsible for lost or stolen items or uniforms.

     

    This must be done before you exit the locker room to go to class.

     LATENESS

    Students must come to class on time.

    The doors are locked when the bell rings. 

     

    Students late to class are not permitted to go to the locker room to dress for class. 

     

    This can have a dramatic effect on grade.

     

     

    Students who are late to squad lines impact the entire class. 

    This disruption to instructional time will cause the late student to lose five points from his/her participation grade.

     At the end of class, students must remain in the locker room until the passing bell rings.
