Care of Personal Property
The school is not responsible for the loss or damage of personal property. Students are advised to leave items of value at home and not share their locker combinations.
Lost & Found
Students are advised to check in the office for any items that may have been turned in. Items not claimed by the end of the school year will be donated.
Personal Electronic Devices
Our school has a Digital Citizenship plan and an Acceptable Use Policy that addresses the appropriate use of electronic devices at school.
Personal electronic devices may be used for educational purposes with permission of a teacher. Cell phones and other electronic devices must not interfere with the learning environment. When not being used to support learning, devices must be turned off and be out of sight during instructional times (i.e. when classes or tutorials are in session) and in instructional areas (hallways are considered instructional areas during class time). Students who use cell phones in class, without teacher permission, can expect the following:
- Confiscation of phone for a period of time decided on by their Assistant Principal
- Contact with parent
Office Phone for Emergency Use
Western Canada High School has an office phone available to students for emergency use. Personal messages for students will not be accepted by school personnel. Only family emergency messages will be relayed to students. Parents: Please do not text or phone students on their cell phones during class times.
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.
