3. Locker and Student Fees
A $10.00 registration fee is payble to the office on the first day of school. You will be assigned your locker as time permits before the student assembly or during a spare period during the day, during lunch or after school. Each student has to have his/her own locker. You cannot share one and only a lock supplied by the school can be used. You cannot use your own lock. When you return the lock at the end of the school year, you will get $2.00 back. Students must pay their registration fee in order to take part in any school activities. If you are unable to pay the registration fee, please see Mr. Luomala to make confidential arrangements or your parents can call Mr. Luomala at 854-0130 – Ext. 225.
