The Security Officer will issue lockers to students on a first-come, first-served basis. There are only 488 lockers available on the school campus. Because of the limited number of lockers, students may find a “locker buddy” to share a locker with for the school year.
Use of Locker
All lockers assigned to students are the property of Moanalua Middle School. In other words, lockers are not private property, and students shall not decorate the inside and/or outside of their assigned locker. At no time does the school relinquish its exclusive control of its lockers. Students will be assigned a locker only after the student and parent(s) have read and signed a permission form. If a locker is to be shared with another student (“locker buddy”), both, parents and students, need to sign the permission form. Students can only store their own belongings and must use only the locker assigned to the student. Students cannot move their belongings to any locker that is not assigned to the student. Any student found using a locker that is not assigned to him/her, will immediately lose this privilege.
Primary usage of the locker is to store school materials and supplies which will enhance the student’s ability to learn. Lockers shall not be used to store items that are in violation of the Student Handbook and/or Chapter 19. Lockers are not burglar proof; therefore, students should not leave valuable items such as money or expensive personal property in their locker. Students are also responsible for all school property that may be taken from the locker. No food items are to be left in the locker, as this will attract rodents and/or start an insect infestation.
The school will need to have the combinations to all students’ combination locks. This will be kept on a master list with the Security Officer. All students must also comply with the following:
- Supply a combination-type lock.
- Provide the combination to the Security Officer; this also applies to all replacement locks.
- Never give out combination to other students.
The Security Officer shall have custody of all lock combinations for student lockers. Students are prohibited from placing locks on lockers without proper approval by the SO. Students are advised to always remember to check their lock before leaving the area, and make sure they have secured their locker. If for any reason a student suspects that their locker or lock has been tampered with, immediately report the incident to the Security Officer or an Administrator.
Every Friday will be designated as “Locker Clean-Up Day,” when students are to remove all items in their locker to avoid theft over the weekend.
