cost of any lost or damaged book or uniform. Unpaid accounts will result in
loss of school privileges including extra-curricular activities, bus pass
privileges, and other school services.

procedures through their assigned Guidance Counsellors. Check-out procedures
include written confirmation of the transfer or retirement from a parent, the
return of all materials belonging to the school (including bus passes), and the
signature of an Administrator or designate. Official transcripts are not
issued to any retiring or transferring student who has not completed check-out
