Security of Personal Property
Typically theft happens in the Physical Education locker rooms while students are near their lockers. They leave their locker open to change by their friends or to go look in the mirror, and their stuff is gone when they return. However, theft does occur in other instances. Students are to shield the combination when spinning a combination lock; click and spin the lock to ensure that someone can’t just pull down on the lock and open it; and not to leave items on the floor of the halls or on the counters in the washrooms.
Sadly there are some students who steal. Whatever children are willing to bring to school and leave unattended, they are willing to lose. The school will not be held responsible for the theft of personal belongings or items from the child’s locker or person. Electronic devices such as cell phones, iPods and calculators are common targets. Students should be vigilant at all time
All students’ personal and school property in their possession should be clearly marked with their name, ID and year.
Lost and found items such as watches, jewellery, electronic devices, textbooks and Learning Commons books are to be turned in at the Main Office. Other items are deposited in the Lost and Found wire cart, which is located beside the main doors. Unclaimed useable items will be kept for use in the school or donated.
Please report any lost valuables to the office so that in the case the item is turned into the office we can return it to you. We would strongly suggest that students do not bring items to school that they are not willing to lose.
The school is not responsible for the loss, damage, or replacement of personal items.
Bikes, Skateboards, Rollerblades, etc.
The school cannot assume responsibility for bikes parked on the school grounds. Bicycles must be stored in the bike racks provided and locked with a good quality lock. To minimize theft, students are required to lock bikes individually. Loitering at bike racks is unacceptable. Skateboards, rollerblades and longboards are to be stored in the student’s locker for the duration of the school day.
To prevent accidents and possible danger to pedestrians, bicycles, rollerblades, skateboards, longboards, etc. are not to be ridden in the school, on the lawn, in the field, on the sidewalks or in the parking lot.
Student motorbikes are prohibited on the school property. Students are expected to obey all cross walk and traffic light by-laws. It is expected that students will obey the law and wear a bike helmet where applicable.
