It shall be the policy of the Narragansett School System to allow school administration to inspect school properties to maintain a healthy and safe environment.† Lockers, though assigned to pupils, are school property and may be reasonably inspected.† The right to inspection of studentsí lockers is inherent in the authority granted the School Committee and administrators and should be exercised so as to assure parents that the school, in pursuing its in loco parentis relationship with their children, will employ every safeguard to protect the well being of those children.
Inspections for the location of drugs, narcotics, liquor, weapons, poisons, or missing properties are matters relating to health and safety and may be regarded as reasonable purposes for inspection by school personnel.
It is recommended that, insofar as possible, the pupil to whom the locker is assigned be present for the inspection.† It is recommended that at least two members of the staff conduct inspections together, particularly when the pupil is not present.
