Locker & Storage
Each DHS/DMS student is provided with a locker and a lock. Students are not allowed to share lockers.
- Lockers and desks are to be treated as school property on loan to students.
- Master keys and copies of combinations are retained by the school. Personal locks are not authorized to be used on lockers. Unauthorized locks will be removed. The replacement charge for lost locks will be six dollars.
- Certain items may not be stored in lockers, desks, or other receptacles. This would include weapons, illegal drugs, alcoholic beverages, stolen property, etc.
- The school retains the right to inspect lockers and desks at any time for compliance with these rules and to maintain safety, health, and sanitation standards.
Valuables are not to be stored in lockers. Dedham Public Schools cannot assume any responsibility for lost or stolen personal property. Valuables that must be brought into school should be brought to the main office for safekeeping. For proper security, students should keep lockers locked at all times and not divulge the combination to anyone.
Since student lockers are the property of the Dedham Public Schools, they may, if necessary, be searched by a school administrator.
