HASBROUCK HEIGHTS HIGH
HEIGHTS! WHERE TRADITION AND INNOVATION TAKE FLIGHT!
STUDENT CONDUCT (#5600)
Lockers are designed only for the storage of books, school supplies, and outerwear and are not
designed to provide security for valuables. All students are urged to take precautions with their
possessions. Make sure lockers are closed and locked. Personal belongings should not be left
where others may have the opportunity to take them. Please keep the lockers clean and free from
odor-causing items. Students who tamper with other students’ lockers will be subject to
disciplinary action. Locker inspections will occur during the school year.
The Hasbrouck Heights School District respects student privacy and provides students with the
use of a locker in which they may store clothing, school materials, and other personal property.
Although each student is responsible for maintaining the locker assigned to him/her, all lockers
are and shall remain the property of the school district. Students may not use multiple lockers
Lockers may not be used as a depository for substances or objects which are illegal or which
constitute a threat to the health, safety, and welfare of the occupants of the school buildings.
School administrators reserve the right to search lockers and their contents at any time on a
blanket or random basis, without notice, and without parental guardianship or pupil consent, and
without reasonable suspicion of the presence of contraband.
Lunch period is an opportunity to relax and interact with friends. Students are expected to clean up after
themselves, behave appropriately and follow the directions of the teachers and administrators in charge.
Trash barrels are available to deposit trash. There are also containers specifically designated for
recycling, and all are encouraged to help with the school’s effort in this regard. Leaving trash on the table
or throwing trash on the floor is unacceptable. Students who display inappropriate behavior during
lunch or who do not clean up after themselves may have restricted lunchroom access as a consequence.
Students are expected to keep to the right while traveling in the hallway, keep voices low, and keep
moving to your next classroom. It is important not to gather with friends or stop to talk during the
passing of classes. Loitering could result in lateness to class. Students are not permitted to
enter classrooms without a teacher present. Students must wait outside and line up along the lockers
until the teacher arrives and/or permits student entrance.
Careless disposal of gum in drinking fountains, furniture, and floors presents sanitation and cleaning
problems and costly repair. Therefore, gum chewing is not permitted.
