Personal Belongings

Students are strongly discouraged from bringing any personal belongings to school that are not directly necessary for their studies. In particular, cellular telephones, iPods and cameras are often lost by students and prove to be tempting targets for thieves. While the school administration and our resource officer will discuss personal property losses with students, the school expresses no responsibility to conduct an investigation of circumstances surrounding these losses. In bringing non-essential personal property to school, students accept all associated risks.

Lost & Found

The Lost and Found bins are located in the Main Foyer by the gym. Valuable items like cell phone and wallets etc will be kept in the main office. Periodically, items not claimed from the lost and found are given to local charities or discarded.

Confiscated Materials

In accordance with CBE Administrative Regulation 6014, school staff who find a student’s use or possession of an item to be interfering with instruction or with the safe and orderly conduct of school, may confiscate the item. This includes cell phones and iPods.

Confiscated drugs, alcohol, tobacco or weapons will be given to the School Resource Office. Other items will be sent to the Main Office, registered and will be available to the owner at the end of the school day. Students must present valid school identification before an item will be returned.

Drugs & Alcohol

James Fowler High School is committed to creating a healthy environment for learning and teaching. The illegal possession and/or use of alcohol and drugs is incompatible with a healthy learning environment and with effective learning.

Students must not have active contact with, have possession of, and/or make use of alcohol or illegal drugs before, during or after the school day or in the context of any school activity. “Active contact” includes willingly and knowingly being in the company of others who are in possession of, or who are making use of, alcohol and/or illegal drugs. Any student found in contravention of this rule will be suspended from school and/or recommended for expulsion. The School Resource Officer will be involved.

Smoking / Electronic Cigarettes

In accordance with CBE Administrative Regulation 4024 - Smoke Free Environment. Smoking is not permitted anywhere on the property of James Fowler High School. Any student found smoking cigarettes or e-cigarettes on school property will be charged by our School Resource Officer under the Smoke-Free Places Act of Alberta and may be suspended from school.

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.

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.
