GENERAL REGULATIONS OF THE LOCKER SERVICE

The non-profit association APEEE Services - Casiers is charged by the European School of Brussels I to put lockers at the disposal of pupils attending secondary school and to manage this service. The registration and renewal of lockers is done via the computer application developed by Apeee Services.

Article 1: Registration and keys delivery

Registration for a new student :  on the website http://www.uccleparents.org

Delivery of keys for all orders in payment order (in "accepted" status on your parents' account):

- 1st secondary: the locker keys are handed out in the classrooms on the 1st day of school.

- S2 to S7: students must collect their key from the locker office (Pré-Vert building - 1st floor)

For students who already have a record: an automatic renewal is done annually and must be validated by the parents in the course of June.

Article 2: Rates

The amount of rental 20€ is due at the time of registration or renewal upon receipt of the payment request message sent by the locker service. In case of non-payment after two reminders, the locker will be emptied and the lock changed.

Payments are only made by bank transfer.

At the time of the first allocation of a locker, a deposit of 25€ must be paid. The payment of the rental / deposit is equivalent to the acceptance of these regulations.

Article 3: Responsibility

Any student with a locker is deemed to be aware of these rules.

When a locker is allocated, each student is required to declare to the locker office any damage or vandalism found on the locker placed at his or her disposal in order not to be held responsible for it later.

A locker is assigned to a single person, who will be responsible for their locker for the duration of the rental. The sharing of a locker is prohibited unless otherwise authorized by the locker department head. A student may only use the locker assigned to him/her.

The Locker Service has the right to open the lockers at any time for repairs, maintenance or to verify that the use of the lockers is in accordance with these regulations. This will be done in a reasonable manner and with respect for the student's privacy.

The APEEE Services declines all responsibility for any theft of valuables, break-ins or accidents that may occur.

If the contents of the lockers are not removed during the summer break, and they disappear, the APEEE Services cannot be held responsible, nor can the APEEE Services be held responsible for cases abandoned after a student has returned his or her locker.

Article 4: Proper use of lockers

The lockers are available for students to store their school supplies and sports clothing. As part of the proper use of lockers, students should:

- keep their lockers clean and in good condition;

- do not leave perishable goods inside the lockers;

- It is imperative to empty their lockers at the end of the school year, even if they keep them;

- inform the person in charge of the lockers as soon as possible if they witness acts of vandalism, damage or theft.

Graffiti, stickers, as well as any hanging or sticking of objects outside or inside the locker, are strictly prohibited. They will be systematically punished.

Article 5: Exchange of lockers

The exchange of lockers between 2 students is only possible from 1 November to 30 April inclusive. The students concerned must go to the locker office and obtain the prior agreement of the person in charge, who retains the discretionary power to refuse this request without having to give reasons for his decision.

Article 6: Lost keys

In case of key loss, a 10€ payment will be required for a new original key or cylinder change, if necessary. This payment will be made in cash at the Locker Services office.

Article 7: Refund of guarantee
