I left a stack of graded papers in a box outside my office so students could pick them up at their convenience. Is this okay?

No, this is a problem. Although it may seem like a good service to your students to provide quick return of materials in this way, there is nothing to prevent anyone from inappropriately sifting through all of the papers to learn grades other than his own and possibly to obtain other students' identifying information, all of which is protected.
