As a safety precaution, backpacks and other large carrying bags, including purses and tote bags are not allowed on the campus of Alta Vista High School. Students who bring bags to school will be warned once not to do so again. If students bring bags to school a second time, the bag will be confiscated and not returned until the end of the school year. A backpack room is available in the front office to store backpacks that are not allowed on campus. AVHS is not responsible for any lost or stolen items.
Students who participate in extracurricular activities and physical education will be allowed to bring backpacks containing a change of clothes/ necessary equipment in a secure location in the front office. Alta Vista High School assumes no responsibility for items which are lost or stolen on campus or at a school sponsored event and strongly discourages students from bringing such items to school unless they are absolutely necessary. Off campus classes will be given a clear backpack to use during their PE, Weights, and/or Dance Class. A fee of $10.00 will be assessed for all lost and/or not returned backpacks. All backpacks including non-clear backpacks must be stored in backpack room or in designated backpack area in new building.
Small purses are permitted on the AVHS campus. However, purses and handbooks may not be large enough to fit a book, notebook, or folder inside.
