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
All clothing, shoes, backpacks and other items that are found in the school are placed in the Lost and Found box. Lost items are easily returned if students’ names are clearly written on clothing, footwear and school supplies with a felt pen or name tags. Items will be set out during Individual Program Plan (IPP) meeting days. Items are placed out for claiming on IPP days. At the end of the year, unclaimed items are donated to a charity.
Personal Electronic Devices and Cell Phones
Cell phones and other electronic devices can be distractions in learning environments. We allow the responsible use of such technology with the following expectations:
- Electronics with access to the internet are closely monitored by staff. Students may be asked to hand their devices in at the beginning of the school day (e.g. Cell phones, iPods and similar wireless devices).
- Students may use these devices prior to entering the building before classes begin and, likewise, outside at the end of the school day when classes have finished.
- Students may make appropriate use of their devices off campus during the lunch break.
- In all cases, students’ use of cell phones and electronic devices must respect the confidentiality of the other students.
Students are to comply with expectations regarding digital citizenship (CBE Administrative Regulation 1062 Responsible Use of Electronic Information Resources).
We certainly encourage active living practices with children such a 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.
Students are not permitted to smoke, vape or use any tobacco products , on the school grounds (CBE Administrative Regulation 4024 - Smoke Free Environment), or Hull Services property which extends to the sidewalk along Woodpark Avenue to each end of the block.
