Once on school property, students must dismount from skateboards, scooters, and bicycles and walk them to the appropriate rack. Bicycles, scooters and skateboards must be locked outside on the racks. Students must provide their own lock to secure their bicycles, scooters and skateboards to the racks. Skateboards, scooters and bicycles are not allowed on the buses.

All students are assigned a locker with a built-in combination lock. Under no circumstances should students share their combination with others. All personal items are brought to school at the student’s own risk – the school does not guarantee the security of personal items against loss, theft or damage. During the school day, coats and backpacks are to be stored in lockers.

Personal items that cause a distraction or disruption to the learning environment or are used in violation of school policy will be confiscated. Items will be held in the main office until the student returns a signed Parent/Guardian Acknowledgement form or a parent/guardian picks up the item. Repeated violations will result in disciplinary action.

A Lost and Found Box is located in the main hall near the Cafetorium.  All items left in Lost and Found before Winter Break and Summer Break will be donated.

Deer Creek discourages the consumption of energy drinks (Red Bull, Monster, Amp, Rockstar, NOS, etc.) at school. The high caffeine and sugar content in these beverages can have a negative effect on the ability to maintain focus in the classroom. The ingredients in energy drinks provide a short-term energy boost but often lead to a “crash” of lethargy when the initial impact of the stimulants wears off. Students will be asked to dispose of energy drinks on campus.

Students may bring their own lunch from home, purchase a full lunch, or use the school’s "a la carte" line. Students may deposit money into their personal lunch accounts at any time. District policy regarding purchase of lunches when students have insufficient funds in their account:

  • Families are expected to keep student meal accounts current.
  • Cafeteria purchases are tracked in the student’s meal account by the cafeteria checkout system.
  • Students may purchase a standard school lunch even if they have insufficient funds in their account.
  • Students may not purchase a la carte items if they have a negative balance on their account.
  • Students may not purchase a la carte items with cash (bottled beverages, milk, extra entrees, snack items, etc.) when their account is in the negative.
  • Communication is emailed to all families twice a week with negative balances until the negative balance is cleared.

Families are encouraged to use the SchoolCafe system to pay and monitor lunch accounts. With this program, parents/guardians may deposit money into their student’s lunch account, monitor amount spent per day, check balances, be alerted when a student’s account falls to a specified level, and set up automatic payments to the account when it is depleted. A link to SchoolCafe is available on the school website under Family Resources.
