Below you will find some of the most frequently asked questions about lockers. If you do not see the answer you were seeking please drop us a note at: mailat:lockers@theverein.com

Q. My child did not return an “Application for Locker Use” or our family were not members of the Verein before school starts. Will my child be able to get a locker?

A. All incoming students will have a locker set aside for their use! This includes all current 6th graders who are transitioning to high school and all the new families who have been identified to us. If we need a form or confirmation that your family are current members of the Verein once this is received the locker will be released to the student. If you are new to the school and we were unaware of your attendance do not worry as each year we set aside an ample number of spare lockers to cover late arrivals.

Q. We are not going to be able to attend Orientation Day (August 14th) how does our student get their locker?

A. From Monday, August 17th through Wednesday, August 19th the locker committee will have a table on the ground floor of the blue building. Unless your child received take-home documents on the first day of school from their new HR teacher they can come and talk with us.

After August 19th your student can see the American Vice-Principal, David Krupski, who will manage the lockers for the balance of the school year.

Q. Why does my student need to pay a €10 fee when they are first assigned their locker?

A. This one-time deposit has two purposes: While our combination locks are very high quality they do wear out. From the deposit €5 is allocated for the replacement of locks. The other €5 will be refunded to the student when they graduate from the 12th class or if you are leaving JFK for good.

IMPORTANT: The lock deposit is only to be given to a representative of the locker committee. DO NOT give this fee to your child’s HR teacher as they will still have to pay it before issue of their locker and you will be responsible for tracking down the first payment.

Q. How can my student get assigned a top (or bottom) locker?

A. The assigned lockers change every year as the students progress through high school. When preparing for the new school year the initial assignment (top or bottom) is entirely random.

Should your child have a medical condition that limits their ability to kneel, bend or stoop, if you will provide the locker committee with a letter from the child’s orthopedic doctor they will be assigned a top locker. You can submit this letter to: mailto:lockers@theverion.com
