Clothing, shoes, gym bags, and other personal property are too often left at the school.
As a result, it is vital that parents mark their sons’ clothing, equipment, and possessions. At the same time, each student bears the responsibility for his own personal belongings and must learn to be careful not to leave books, assignments, and articles of clothing in random places.
Students should check their belongings before coming to school to see that they have all papers, books, and assignments. A lost and found closet is located in the Elementary Building. Check with the receptionist for more information.
