Personal Belongings

All student belongings should be clearly labeled for easy identification. Students are discouraged from bringing valuables or non-essential items such as toys (including Fidget Spinners), collector cards or electronic games to school as the school will not be liable for damage or loss or responsible for helping students locate these items. Parents and students sign a Contract for Digital Citizenship each year regarding responsible use of technology. A wireless student network for Internet access using student owned personal electronic devices such as iPods, iPads or cell phones is provided at Vista
Heights School. Use of these devices is for educational purposes only and they are not to be brought to school without teacher permission. Vista Heights teachers may distribute a BYOD contract (Bring Your Own Device) on a class-by-class basis. This contract will outline the expectations for students bringing their own personal electronics to school. Students using personal cell phones for reasons other than learning will be asked to hand in their phones to the main office each day or keep their phones at home.

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.
