Personal Belongings

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. 

Backpacks, Purses, Bags

Backpacks/bags may be used to carry school supplies/books to and from school only. Backpacks, bags and purses must be kept in the locker during the school day and are not to be carried to classes unless special permission is granted as it is a fire and safety issue. Students have access to their lockers during the day to exchange materials and store their


Food, Drinks, Gum

Students should not be chewing gum in the building without the express permission of the teacher they are working with. Similarly, food and drinks (other than water bottles) are not to be taken into class unless special arrangements have been made with the teacher. Caffeine energy drinks are not permitted at school.

Lost & Found

Any items found are to be taken to the “lost and found” which is located at the bottom of the stairwell on the northwest side of the school. We would encourage students to check there for any lost items on a regular basis. If students find library books, textbooks, or valuable items, please bring them to the office. Unclaimed lost and found will be bagged up and taken to charities before school breaks.

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. During instructional hours cell phones are to be turned off and placed in lockers unless directed otherwise by a teacher. Students should not bring their cell phone to gym and place it in their gym locker. 


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. 

Skateboards, Rollerblades

Skateboards, roller-blades, heelies and scooters are not to be ridden on school property as it is against CBE policy to do so. Students may use these forms of transportation to and from school but are not permitted to use these forms of transportation on CBE (School) property. If students are riding the bus they must have these items in a secure bag. Skateboards and scooters must be stored securely on one of the skateboard racks in the cave. Roller-blades, heelies and all other items can be stored in student lockers. If these items are too large, they may be stored as directed by the office staff. The school assumes no responsibility for lost, stolen or damaged items.
