If issues associated with COVID 19 do not allow, staff are requested to contact PSSC admin. PSSC staff, with custodial assistance, will to the best of their ability, empty lockers and collect any other student belongings and place in plastic bags with labels that identify the student and program The bags will be brought to the front of the school.

· It is understood some student lockers are secured with a student’s personal lock. In those cases, students need to be reminded to bring the key or lock combination with them. PSSC staff will take the keys, open the locker, bag the items, and give to student.

Paying fees, returning items (text, workbooks, uniforms, etc.):

It is very important staff communicate with their students exactly what items need to be returned to PSSC and what items will be returned to them during this event in addition to what program fees are outstanding. Graduating seniors that have checked out Chromebooks and/or hotspots should be reminded to return the devices during their visit.
