The LRC is open from 7:30AM until 2:50PM each day and after school on Tuesdays and Wednesday until 3:50PM. The LRC is to be used for research, borrowing books, using the computers, or reading quietly.
Students may obtain a pass to the library at the discretion of the study hall teacher or individual subject area teachers may also give a pre-signed passes to their own students.

Upon arriving at the LRC they are to sign in on the attendance sheets located on the table by writing their name, their study hall teacher’s name and the room number of the study hall. The LRC staff will then notify the study hall teacher of the students who have signed in from their rooms. If students do not sign in they are likely to receive a cut for that mod. Students are expected to remain the entire period unless requested by a teacher to return to a class.
Students are expected to be responsible and courteous and considerate of the needs of others. The LRC staff reserves to right to restrict access to students who disturb others, are generally unruly, or are insubordinate. The first offense will result in a 2-week suspension from LRC use; the second infraction will result in a 1-month suspension. A list of names of students who have temporarily lost privileges will be provided to study hall teachers

It is expected that borrowed materials will be returned on time and that lost or damaged materials will be replaced at the expense of the borrower. Those who do not return materials or pay for them may be denied privileges.
The LRC is fortunate to have its own bathrooms. Keys are available at the front desk for bathroom use.
If a student needs to leave the LRC for any reason, permission must be given and sign-out is needed on the sign-out sheet at the main desk. Anyone who leaves without permission, a pass, or signs-out risks losing privileges. Those who leave without permission will be written up.

Lockers and Desks
Students have no reasonable expectation of privacy with respect to these places and school officials retain complete control over them. This means that student lockers, desks, and other school storage places may be subject to search at any time by school officials, without prior notice to students and without their consent. Lockers are not to be traded or shared. Only school issued locks are to be used on lockers. Any other lock will be forcibly removed without notice to the student.
Disruptive, insubordinate and/or reckless behavior cannot be tolerated on a school bus. Students who are repeatedly disruptive or behave recklessly on the bus will be referred to the appropriate administrator for disciplinary action.
A student's school day begins the moment (s)he steps on the school bus in the morning and ends when (s)he steps off the school bus in the afternoon. During this time a student is subject to all rights and responsibilities, which could result in disciplinary action.
Late Bus Transportation
Students may stay after the 2:20 dismissal time for help in any subject area. If a student is asked to remain or chooses to remain for a teacher, s(he) must obtain a late bus pass from the teacher. Only students who have a regular bus pass are permitted to use the late bus.

School Resource Officers, Security Officers, Hall Monitors
To provide for the safety and security of students, staff members, and visitors at Auburn High School, there are on-site School Resource Officers (Auburn City Police Officers assigned to the school), a Security Officer, and several Hall Monitors. School Resource Officers serve as police officers and mentors working with all students. Alleged criminal activity is referred to our SRO's for investigation and prosecution. (The school district prosecutes all criminal activity that takes place on school property and/or at school sponsored events). Our Security Officer and Hall Monitors assure that students are not loitering in halls, parking lots, or bathrooms. These individuals also supervise our cafeteria. They check students for valid passes and assure that visitors to the building have signed in at the main office and have visible visitor
passes. They also assist by escorting disruptive students to appropriate administrative offices.
Student Health Services
The Auburn High School nurse monitors the health of all students in the school and is the liaison between the school and various health agencies. All students are required to have an updated emergency card on file in the Health Office. This card should be filled out completely and signed by the parent or guardian. The Health Office should be advised of any changes in address, phone numbers, and emergency contact person(s).
The school nurse will provide emergency care for students involved in accidents or unexpected medical situations.
Administration of Medicine in School:
If a student needs to take medication during the school day, he or she must follow these rules:
* Bring a note from his or her parent which gives the nurse permission to store the medication for the student's use, releasing the Board and its employees of liability for the administration of medication.
* Give the nurse a doctor's note with instructions about dosage, times given, etc.
* Bring a copy of the prescription.
* An adult must bring the medication to school in the original container.
In accordance with the state Education Law, each student shall have a physical exam given by the school doctor or family physician upon entrance to school in grades 1, 3, 7, and 10. Physical forms are available from the school nurse for the family physician to fill out. If a form is not returned to the school nurse by October 1 of the school year, the school physician will complete a student's physical. Students wishing to participate in an interscholastic athletic program may also need to have a physical examination. Please see Interscholastic Athletics, for further information.
In accordance with law, the school will provide vision, hearing, and scoliosis screening.
