  • A pass will be issued with the elevator key allowing student to leave class five minutes early. This should allow the student to arrive at each class on time and avoid congestion in the hallways. This additional time may not be needed at the end of each period depending on a student's schedule of class location.
  • There is a $25.00 charge for lost elevator keys. This fine is nonrefundable due to replacement cost of a lost key.
