PTHS Student Handbook 2020-2021


THEFT REPORTS/STOLEN ITEMS Unfortunately, thefts do occur; therefore, students are encouraged not to bring valuable items or large sums of money to school. Any time an item is stolen, a student is to report the incident to their teacher. The teacher will then send the student to the office to fill out a theft form and have a conference with an administrator. A report of the incident will be filed with the administrator, and students are encouraged to report the incident to the local law enforcement agency. The student is responsible for properly locking hall and P.E. lockers, as well as keeping the combination to the locks of those lockers confidential.
