Personal Belongings

Backpacks, Bags, Purses

All backpacks, bags and purses are to be kept in the student locker during the school day.

Digital Devices

Since the spring of 2021, we have been an “Away for the Day” site. This means that the expectation is phones are in lockers from 8:30am to 2:55pm daily, including lunchtime.

This allows students to focus on their learning, their human connections with others, their ability to self-regulate in the absence of technology and minimizes background distraction.

Technology and Social Media are woven into the fabric of our world and it’s up to all of us to influence how we use it in a way that highlights the positives and offers protective factors to deal with the negatives. We ask that parents help us by not texting or calling their child during the day on their device. Should you need to speak to your student, please call the main office and we are happy to help!

Staff will work with students who have their phone out of their locker in a number of ways. This might include being asked to return the phone to their locker, or being asked to pick their phone up at the end of the day from the main office, or requesting that a parent come to the school to pick the phone up. We realize this last option is the least convenient, and we use it only when other responses have not changed behaviour with the phone.

We cannot be responsible for lost or stolen mobile devices or accessories such as earpods or smart watches.   

Please see our Digital Citizenship page to learn more about our Digital Use Policy.

Lost & Found

There is a lost and found cabinet located near the office. Watches, glasses, jewelry, keys, etc. will be kept in the office. Before all major breaks in the school year, unclaimed items will be given to charity or thrown in the garbage, based on condition. Items will be put on display before this happens.

Skateboards, Rollerblades and Scooters

We strongly encourage all students to walk, bike, skateboard, rollerblade or scooter their way to school. Bikes, skateboards and scooters MUST be stored in our outside racks (NOT in student lockers)- we do not have the room to store these in lockers, classrooms or main office. (This also takes away the temptation to ride skateboards and scooters in the halls). All items should be secured with a lock to the racks. Our skateboard and scooter racks work best with a padlock OR a bike lock wound through enough times to take out all of the slack. DGS is NOT responsible for lost or stolen bikes, scooters or skateboards. We recommend that all bikes be registered with Bike Index. Calgary Police Service partners with Bike Index to return lost and stolen bikes.
