THE GIRLS' LOCKER ROOM
The girls' locker room is a unique environment, probably one of the most unique "classrooms" located here in the junior high. Although different from a traditional classroom setting, students should carry the same level of respect for rules as regular academic classrooms located around the building. Students should arrive on time, prepared with their uniform and chromebook, ready to learn and follow directions. Most importantly, students should have respect for other's personal space and belongings (keep your hands to yourself). There is a large whiteboard by the entrance that lists the day's agenda, activities, and other important information. It is important for students to read the whiteboard daily so they know exactly what to do.
You will be changing for phys ed class into your uniform. For some students, this is the first experience of getting dressed with others in the same area. This is one of the main purposes of the locker room: to get changed into proper athletic attire. Each student will receive a combination lock that that will keep for the school year and return back to me in June. There is a level of privacy and safety within the locker room for students, but proper supervision of this area is one of my main duties. Students are not to change in the bathroom stall area unless an issue or concern is brought to my attention.
If you are in repeated violation of the locker room rules listed below, I will send a discipline referral to the main office/Assistant Principal. Mrs. Schmidt has the right to move your locker at anytime, for any reason. Act appropriately or you will lose privilages within the locker room.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Will we be using the showers and showering after class?
NO. The shower area is used for storage for students who play after school sports and have large sport bags/gear. I still encourage expensive valuables to be locked into your small gym locker at all times. Please be reminded that the shower area is NOT locked.
What should I bring in to put into my gym locker?
The essentials - old sneakers, extra socks, a separate sweatshirt just for outdoor PE class, and deoderant.
Can I take my lock home?
NO. School issued locks stay in the locker room and NEVER leave the locker room.
What do I do if I can't find my lock?
Tell Mrs. Schmidt immediately. Also look in your general area as it may be locked on another locker.
Who is responsible if I lose something?
You are, as the student! Once Mrs. Schmidt issues you a lock and locker, you are responsible for all personal items.
Am I allowed to bring in my own lock from home?
