PE Lockers are school property and may be inspected periodically as a general inspection of school property (RCW 28A.600.220). Lockers may also be searched when there is reasonable suspicion of inappropriate contents.
If a locker does not operate correctly, please notify the PE teacher. School personnel will retain a master key for all lockers. Combinations will not be changed during the school year. Money, purses, or other valuable items should not be left in lockers.
LOST OR STOLEN ITEMS: THE SCHOOL ACCEPTS NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR LOST OR STOLEN ITEMS. Any student who damages or defaces a locker will be subject to disciplinary action and will be liable for the cost of repairs. Locks are not to be brought from home and used at school. The privilege of using lockers may be revoked for sufficient cause.
PARKING: Parking in student lots is a privilege and requires each vehicle to be registered with the school and to appropriately display the approved parking decal. In order to receive a Parking Permit, please obtain an application information from the Main Office. Unregistered vehicles, vehicles inappropriately or illegally parked, or vehicles creating a safety hazard will receive a parking violation notice and may be subject to impounding/ towing at owner’s expense. Violators may lose driving privileges for the remainder of the year. A search of a motor vehicle may be made based on reasonable suspicion when related to a possible school violation. Under no circumstances may a student park in visitor or staff parking. Students parking in those areas are subject to total loss of parking privileges on campus.
Adjacent city streets are considered an extension of the school parking lot and campus and are therefore subject to the Search and Seizure Policy when related to a possible school violation as stated in this handbook.
