Parents and Guardians,


Due to the amount of theft issues in the previous school year, we are sending home a
letter reminding parents and students about Gavits Physical Education locker room rules. We
ask all students to leave personal or valuable items in their school locker. Please do not bring
valuable items, such as wallets, purses, cell phones etc. into the gym for Physical Education
class. Students have also been told not to share lockers with friends therefore a lock is required
for their own gym locker and may be purchased at school or bring a lock from home.
I have read the following and understand that Gavit Middle/High School is not responsible for
any lost or stolen items and that my child is responsible for their own items. I also understand
that no investigation will be held if something is stolen.
Regards,
Ms. Arroyo
