Lost and Forgotten Items

忘れ物・落とし物について

今学期も残すところあと少しとなりました。

忘れ物・落とし物は、B校舎1Fの忘れ物保管庫 (Lost and Found)または受付で保管し、持ち主が⾒つからない場合は、学期末ごとに処分させていただいております。残念ながら、忘れ物保管庫と傘⽴てには⽇頃から多くの忘れ物と傘が放置され、学期末には⼤量に処分せざるを得ない状況です。⼼当たりのある⽣徒は、学期末までに必ず確認してください。なお、保護者の方で落し物保管庫を確認されたい方は、コロナ感染症対策のため、まずは受付でその旨を申し出ていただけますようご協力お願いします。

【注意事項】

  1. 学期末までに持ち主が⾒つからなかった忘れ物・落とし物、 貴重品 、傘⽴てに放置されている傘は、学期最終⽇以降に処分させていただきます。
  2. 貴重品(財布、家や自転車の鍵、充電器、時計、電⼦辞書、イヤホン、眼鏡など)の忘れ物は受付で保管しています。
  3. 個⼈の持ち物には必ず名前を記⼊するようにしてください。

保護者の⽅からも、お⼦様に忘れ物・落とし物がないように、注意を促していただきますよう、よろしくお願いいたします。

Lost and Forgotten Items

We accumulate a lot of lost and forgotten items and umbrellas throughout the year and we need to dispose of them after the last day of the trimester. 

Students should check the Lost & Found (first floor of the B building or at the reception desk) and umbrella racks for their lost items/umbrellas and take them home before the end of each term. 

If you are a parent/guardian and would like to check the Lost & Found, please inform the receptionist first due to the COVID-19 prevention measures.

Please note:

  1. Lost and found items (including valuable items) and forgotten umbrellas will be disposed of after the last day of the semester.
  2. Valuable items such as unidentified wallets, keys for the house/bicycle, battery chargers/power banks, watches, electronic dictionaries, earphones and pair of glasses are kept at the reception office.
  3. All personal items students bring to school should be labelled with the student’s name.

Please encourage your children to be careful not to forget or lose anything at school.

Thank you
