Students have been assigned INDIVIDUAL lockers that will appear at the top of their schedule/timetable. Quad 2 timetables will be sent out to student email accounts prior to the start of Quad 2. Students will not be allowed to switch or share lockers.
Locks are available for purchase via School Cash Online (https://schoolcashonline.com/) for $10.00 starting Tuesday Nov. 2nd. Students should take a screen shot or print out their receipt for the purchase and bring the receipt to the School Library to pick up their lock from Nov. 3 to Nov. 11th during the last 15 minutes of the student lunch periods
. If students choose to use their own lock, they will have to provide the combination to their homeroom teacher. Locks not issued by the school may need to be cut off if the school needs access to the locker.
