If Your Child Forgets Something

When students forget an item they were supposed to bring to school, parent should check the Forgotten Items page for advice about bringing forgotten items to school.

Lost and Found

Everyone loses things now and then. When students lose something, they can look for it in the Lost and Found. When students find something that belongs to someone else, they can take it to the Lost and Found.

 

Tips

1. Putting your name on your jackets, sweaters, and other personal possessions will make it easy to find them and return them to you in case you lose them.

2. Items that you don't need for school, especially valuable ones, are best left at home. Why risk losing them?

What to Do If You Lose Something

Don't panic. Most lost items are soon found.

Check for your lost item in the last place you had it. Perhaps it's in the classroom you were just in, so check around your seat and ask the teacher.

If you don't find it, check the Lost and Found (see below). Check once right away. If you don't find it there, check again later or in a day or two because somebody might have found it and turned it in.

Checking the Lost and Found

For jackets and sweaters, backpacks, planners, books, and other commonly lost items:

  • Go to the Student Services Office (Room 129) and ask if they have the item you lost.
  • If not, give them a note with your name, homeroom, and a description of what you lost so they can watch for it.

For valuables such as cell phones, jewelry, and electronics:

  • Go to the Dean's Office (Room 116) and ask Ms. Fields if the item you lost is there.
  • If not, give Ms. Fields a note with your name, homeroom, and a description of what you lost so she can watch for it.
  • Ms. Filelds may check with parents to make sure that nobody else claims something valuable that is yours, and she may have parents pick the item up.

What To Do if you Find Something That Belongs to Someone Else

Thank you for being a good citizen and turning in what somebody else has lost. Let's hope other students will be as honest if you lose something!

For jackets and sweaters, backpacks, planners, books, and other commonly lost items:

  • Take it to the Student Services Office (Room 129).

For valuables such as cell phones, jewelry, and electronics:

  • Take it to Ms. Fields in the Dean's Office (Room 116).

For money (coins and bills):

  • Take it to the Main Office (Room 117) or Magnet Office (next to Room 116) or talk to an Administrator.
  • Tell them your name and homeroom. If they can't find the person who lost the money then they'll return it to you.
