Personal Belongings

Bicycles, Scooters, Skateboards and “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. 

Items Best Left at Home

Articles such as knives, bean shooters, cap pistols, toy guns, water pistols, hardballs, ball bats, skateboards, rollerblades, etc., can be dangerous if handled improperly. These items should not be brought to school. CBE Administrative Regulations require that prior approval of the school principal and classroom teacher is required before bringing any animals or insects to
the school. 

Please contact the office to ensure established requirements have been met prior to bringing any living creatures to the school or classroom. In accordance with CBE policy the school property is a non-smoking, dog-free environment. Please note the posted signs at all times. 

Care & Responsibility for Personal Property

The school is unable to assume the responsibility for the personal property of students. Students wishing to bring electronics (such as iPods and cell phones), trading/game cards, jewelry and special personal items due so at their own risk as there are no lockers or secure places for such items. The school strongly discourages these types of items from coming to school.

Many students use these items on the bus and while walking to school. This is acceptable, but these items must remain in their backpacks all day while at school. These items are not to be used at recess and lunch as students are expected to be physically active by engaging in playground games at recess and lunch.

Lost & Found

All articles of clothing etc. found at school are placed in a wooden bin outside of the school office in the front entry vestibule. Please encourage your child(ren) to check this box for missing items. This process is greatly simplified if items of clothing, footwear, backpacks, lunch kits are clearly labeled with your child’s name. Be sure to check the Lost and Found items which are displayed in the front hall during Parent-Teacher Conference times. Clothing that remains unclaimed following those conferences and at the end of the school year will be bagged and sent on to other agencies.
