Students are advised to check the school's Lost and Found area for any items that may have been misplaced. Items not claimed by the end of the school year will be donated.
Please ensure that your children’s backpacks, lunch bags, indoor shoes and outer clothing such as hats, mitts, boots, running shoes and anything else they may wear or bring to school is clearly marked with their name. If you would like your child’s belongings back, a name is essential! When there are many articles left in the school, we are unable to keep these items for any length of time. Unclaimed items are donated to a charity.
Periodically teachers may have a special day where children are invited to bring personal items for sharing at school; those items will be safely secured in a classroom.
We discourage students from bringing personal belongings not necessary for school. The school cannot assume responsibility for missing or broken personal items.
Should students have personal belongings removed by staff, students may be required to write a letter as a consequence, explaining why they were playing with the item at school. We ask you to support your child’s learning by helping them understand what should and shouldn’t be brought to school.
Bicycles, Scooters, Skateboards & Heelys
We certainly encourage active living practices with children such as riding a bicycle to school. Upon arrival at the school and for the safety of all students, cyclists are expected to walk bicycles on school grounds during school hours. When bicycles are brought to school they should be locked in the bicycle rack provided.
The school cannot be responsible for bicycles damaged or stolen while they are at school. In addition, safety regulations require that skateboards, roller blades and Heelys are not to be brought to school or used on school property.
Personal Electronic Devices
Our school has a Digital Citizenship Policy plan that addresses the appropriate use of electronic devices at school. Students who disregard this policy will have that device confiscated and returned at the end of the day to either the student or his/her parent.
