Middle & High School Locker Information

As a reminder, Middle School students and High School students will be given an assigned locker. This is where students can leave their book bags, phones, school materials, and other personal items. Please make sure that if you are in middle school or high school you bring a combination lock for your locker. Every student that utilizes a locker must put a lock on it for safety purposes during this school year. Students will be required to provide the locker combination to their teacher, in the case of an emergency administration may need to use the combination, if a combination is not provided our custodian may need to cut the lock.
