Personal Belongings

Backpacks

To ease congestion, and for safety reasons, students are not allowed to carry backpacks to their classes. Backpacks need to be left in lockers during the school day. Students are never to leave backpacks, textbooks, binders, etc. on hallway floors as they cause a tripping hazard, are easily damaged, often create a mess, and impede our caretakers’ ability to
clean the floors. 

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

Students are advised to check in the office for any items that may have been turned in. Items not claimed by the end of the school year will be donated.

Cell Phones and Personal Devices

Cell phones and other personal devices are not to be used for any reason during instructional hours unless permission is given by a teacher. If they cause disruptions in the classroom, they may be confiscated for the duration of the class or, depending on the circumstance, the student may be referred to administration and the phone may be returned only to a parent. Our school has a Digital Citizenship plan that addresses the appropriate use of electronic devices at school. 

Bicycles 

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.
