ALL STUDENTS:  Each and every student in the HS/MS is issued a locker and a lock to use on that locker.  Many of you choose NOT to use these.  You need to know that should anything go missing from your locker, you will be held financially responsible for the replacement cost of items such as text books, computers, chargers and any other school owned items.  With text books running anywhere from $60-$120 each and computers that cost $900, we hope you will reconsider using the locks on your lockers.
