HHSS Student Retrieval of items from Lockers and Return of Materials on loan

Dear Students and Families, 

We are pleased to share HHSS’s plan for the retrieval of student belongings from lockers and return of HHSS  loaned items (text books, team jerseys and equipment and Chromebooks if not continuing within the WRDSB).  

It is not mandatory that students in Grade 9 to Grade 11 remove their belongings from their locker in June. Students will have the same lockers in September that they had this current year.

If students would like to retrieve their belongings from their lockers they may enter the school for 5 – 15 minutes on the scheduled days for their Grade level. 

We would request that all students return their textbooks/library books.  If a student does not require entry into the school to retrieve items from their lockers they can drop the textbooks/library books into the bin located outside the front entrance of the school..

The WRDSB has an obligation to follow physical distancing requirements set out by the Government of Ontario both outside and inside the facility at all times. Staff will be onsite to greet, check-in, guide and assist students both inside and outside the building.  

Grade 9, Grade 10 and Grade 11 Lockers that are not cleared will be left untouched (unless perishable items are suspected) until your return in September.  


June 22nd Grade 12 Student Locker Clean out and Material Returns :  

9:00 am to 11:00 am Surnames A – M

11:00 am to 1:00 pm  Surnames N – Z

Upon coming back to the school to clean out your locker Grade 12’s and those not returning to the WRDSB are required to return chromebooks and chargers. Chromebooks and their charging cords are the property of the Waterloo Region District School Board and must be returned upon leaving Huron Heights Secondary School. Chromebooks are to be returned regardless of their condition. Students will not be charged if they return a damaged device. Chromebooks that are not returned will be disabled by WRDSB Information Technology Services.

To assist with the return of the chromebook please make sure your name is on the sticker on the bottom of the Chromebook

Students who are leaving the WRDSB will have their Google Drive and email accounts closed in August. These students are STRONGLY recommended to back up all documents and emails to their personal drive/accounts before the end of the semester.  Apps such as Google Takeout can make this process easier. Students should consider following  this tutorial to assist with the process.
