All students are provided with hall lockers. Students are asked to store items of value in their lockers. Please do not bring unnecessary sums of money or objects of value to school. In the rare instance where this may be necessary, the office staff will put the item in a sealed envelope and secure it in the vault for the day.
The student is responsible for replacing any lost or stolen locks. The replacement cost is $5. A new lock will not be issued until the replacement fee has been paid. Students are not permitted to supply their own locks. Non-school locks will be cut off of lockers at the student’s expense.
- Hallway locker: students may have to share this locker with another student. Many students use lockers as bulletin boards and students are reminded that material posted should be appropriate and non-offensive. Students are not permitted to use someone else’s locker. Hallway locker changes require office approval.
- Physical Education locker (tote box): students are issued their own P.E. tote box. Any questions should be directed to the P.E. teacher.
It is the student’s responsibility to keep both lock combinations a secret and to keep their locker and tote box neat and tidy. Since lockers are the property of the CBE school officials can search both the student and their locker if they have reasonable grounds to believe that there has been a breach of school regulations or discipline and that a search would reveal evidence of that breach.
What does Search and Seizure mean?
When necessary, teachers must be able to quickly intervene, search students, and seize articles or items that interfere with the safety and maintenance of a learning environment. Student searches cannot be at the expense of students’ basic rights. The Supreme Court of Canada’s decision in R. v. M. (M.R.) found a balance between these two positions by requiring the search to be both reasonable at its inception and reasonable in scope.
