What should my child bring/not bring to school? Where should they store their stuff?

In the Kindergarten and Lower School, children should leave all electronics, toys, and collectibles at home. This includes Pokemon and other trading cards. Teachers will not allow these items in the classroom and will remind your child to leave them at home.

Please be aware that scooters will be stored outside of school buildings during the day. Bikes should be locked in bike racks and can’t be stored inside. Wheeled shoes and wheeled objects are not allowed inside school buildings.

If it’s too valuable to lose, it may be best left at home. Middle school students – and, on request, high school students – are provided with lockers which, when locked, are the safest place to store personal belongings. Locks are available free of charge in division offices. Students younger than high school should leave cell phones at home or store them in lockers or otherwise away for the duration of the school day. (You can read more about our cell phone policy below.)
