Personal Belongings

Lost & Found

Students are advised to check the school's Lost and Found area for any items that may have been misplaced.

Twice per year – in December and again in June – any unclaimed items are donated to local charities. Please check the Lost & Found regularly to see if your child’s lost items have been transferred there. 

Please label your child's personal belongings, as it would make it easier for lunchroom supervisors to return lost items 


Students are strongly discouraged from bringing personal items to school – including electronic devices, toys, phones, etc. The school cannot be responsible for these items if they are lost or stolen. Children are encouraged to be responsible for their own possessions at all times. 

Non-Permitted Items

Pokemon or Trading Cards

Students are not allowed to bring pokemon or any other kind of trading cards to school. The loss or theft of these items have caused many disagreements between friends and family distress over the costs of replacement. It is much easier to keep the cards at home and play and trade with them there!

Wheelie Shoes

Students are not allowed to wear ‘wheelie’ shoes inside the school building or on the school grounds. This is to ensure student safety for all our children.


CBE has a very clear policy of no sleds allowed on the school grounds for safety reasons. If families would like to bring sleds after school for children to use the hill, that is completely acceptable. Please do not send children with sleds or bring siblings with sleds to use during school hours.

We do allow the children wearing snow pants to slide on their bottoms down the hills – not on bellies or backs.

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 plan and an Acceptable Use Policy 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.

RT @UsihChristopher: We thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to make this learning shift for next week. While it is yet another significant change, we hope that it will serve to reduce the current learning disruptions that are continuing to occur in our schools.

Starting Monday, April 19 students in Grades 7-12 will transition to at-home learning for at least two weeks. #yycbe #WeAreCBE

RT @DalhousieCBE: Social distancing requirements hampering reading buddies? No problem! Our @DalhousieCBE Gr 4/5 HUB students recorded read alouds for younger students to listen to. Authentic audience and sense of ownership and pride! #SomosDalhousie #WeAreCBE @yycbedu @CBElanguages

Each year Alberta Education sends an important survey to parents/guardians of students in Grades 4, 7 and 10. The results are used to assess satisfaction with the quality of education & we use the information to improve teaching and learning. #yycbe
