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
Please mark your children’s outer clothing, hats, mitts, boots, running shoes and anything else they may wear or bring to school, with their name. Please encourage your child to frequent the Lost and Found box, as well as look at the items on display when they are in the front hall. When there are so many articles left in the school, we are unable to keep these “lost” articles for any length of time. Unclaimed items are donated to a charity.
Periodically teachers may have a special day where children are invited to bring personal items for sharing at school; those items will be safely secured in a classroom.
We discourage students from bringing personal belongings no necessary for school. The school cannot assume responsibility for missing or broken personal items.
Should students have personal belongings removed by staff, students may be required to write a letter as a consequence, explaining why they were playing with the item at school. We ask you to support your child’s learning by helping them understand what should and shouldn’t be brought to school.
We respect your right to make decisions about giving your child a cell phone or other play items to use before and after school. Cell phones may be temporarily taken away if they are being used inappropriately during school hours. Please send a note to your child’s teacher should you decide to give your child permission to have any electronic devices at school.
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.
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.
Skateboards, scooters and rollerblades are allowed as a means of transportation to and from school. However, once the child is on the school grounds, the scooters must be folded down and the blades and boards must be carried. Children must not use these pieces of equipment on the school grounds.
