Safekeeping of Valuables

Students are discouraged from bringing valuables and large amounts of money to school. Students are responsible for the safekeeping of valuables and should not leave books, clothing, wallets, purses, or other valuables unattended. Any item deemed inappropriate on school property may be confiscated by a teacher or administrator. This includes items of clothing that do not meet dress code standards. School officials accept no responsibility for the safekeeping of confiscated items.

Items confiscated from students will be brought to the main office where the items will be logged in under the student’s name. The items will be stored in a locked area of the main office. The items will only be returned to the student’s parent or legal guardian, and it is the student’s responsibility to inform their guardian that an item has been confiscated. All confiscated items will be held for 24 hours. If an item is confiscated on Friday, it cannot be picked up until Monday. All items must be picked up after 2:45 p.m. Parents should call the office to arrange a time to retrieve the item. The parent will be asked to identify the item and sign for it before it can be released. Any student who persistently brings impermissible items to school will be disciplined in accordance with MPS’ Code of Student Behavior. Any item not claimed by the end of the school year will be donated to charity.
