Lost and Found

The Lost and Found system divides items according to where they were found, either in the LS Tower or the Main Building, except for lunch boxes, which are kept in a central location. Labeling items is the best way to ensure that a student can find them quickly. Please note that it is up to individual students to find their lost items.

CISPA Lost and Found Initiative
Several times a year, CISPA volunteers gather lost items with labels and match them to their owners. This eco-friendly enterprise makes a lot of parents happy. To help with this worthy cause email cispa@cispa.hk.

Labelling
To facilitate finding lost items, we strongly encourage you to label all items with the student’s first and surname.

Items that require labelling include the following:

  • ALL uniform items (jackets, hoodies, fleeces, sweaters, shirts, trousers, shorts, dresses, t-shirts, hats etc.)
  • Non-uniform items worn to school
  • All backpacks, lunch boxes, and water bottles

For clothing, CISPA strongly recommends the use of printed iron-on name labels as laundry pen fades and becomes difficult to read.  Name labels can also be removed in the future and allow for recycling of uniforms.  For non-clothing items CISPA recommends the use of printed plastic labels. Plastic labels are dishwasher safe and easy to read. Unlabelled uniforms found in the school will be donated to the US second-hand uniform shop.

Lost and Found Boxes and Cabinets
There are Lost and Found Boxes on all floors in the LS Tower and most floors in the Main Building.  Lost items will be placed in the box closest to where the item was found.  The Lost and Found boxes will be emptied every Saturday and the items will be taken to one of two centralized Cabinets, either in the 12/F Cafeteria for items found in the LS Tower or the 8/F stairwell for items found in the Main Building. If lost items cannot be found in the Boxes, please check the centralized Cabinets at the beginning of the week.

Personal items such as clothing, books and stationery will be kept in the Cabinets until the end of each term.  At the end of term all items will be placed on display in the 9/F Lobby.  If not collected by the term break, items will be donated to the US second-hand uniform shop or to charity.

Lunch Boxes, Food Containers and Water Bottles
For hygiene reasons the procedure for lost lunch boxes and water bottles is different. Any lost lunch boxes, food containers or water bottles will be placed in the 6/F or 12/F Lunch Box Lost and Found, depending in which building they were found, and not in the hallway Boxes.  Cleaning staff will discard any food before putting lost items in the boxes.  Each Saturday, all food containers will be disposed of, and lunch boxes and water bottles will be transferred to the “Main Lunch Box Lost and Found” in the outside area between the 6/F Alan Dick Forum and the Main Building.  Lunch boxes and water bottles will be kept there for one more week before disposal.

Sometimes it can take a few days for lost items to be turned in to the Lost and Found. Please check back after a week or two in case the missing item went home with another child by accident and has only been returned to the school after several days.
