All student belongings should be clearly labeled for easy identification. Students are not to bring valuables or non-essential items such as toys, collector cards or electronic games to school as the school will not be liable for damage or loss or responsible for helping students locate these items. Parents and students sign a Contract for Digital Citizenship each year regarding responsible use of technology. A wireless student network for Internet access using student owned personal electronic devices such as iPods is provided at Ranchlands. Use of these devices is for educational purposes only and they are not to be brought to school without teacher permission.
Lost and Found
Articles of clothing, lunchboxes and personal belongings found around the school or on the playground are deposited in the lost and found boxes located in the back hallway leading to the gym. Valuables and money are turned in at the office. Students are expected to be responsible for their own possessions. However, parents are asked to assist by checking the lost and found to claim lost items. Periodically, the unclaimed items are donated to charity.
Scooter and Bicycle Safety
Students may ride their bikes to school providing:
- Students walk their bikes directly in front of the school
- Scooters and bikes are walked on the school grounds.
- Scooters and bikes are locked in the racks provided.
- Common sense is exercised on the way to and from school.
The school cannot assume responsibility for scooters and bikes brought to school.
