September, Lockers and MORE

August 24, 2017

Please check twitter @sd35brookswood and the website for updates and news.

Lockers

This year we are moving to an on-line locker system.  Grade 8 students will be assigned lockers in their homeroom on Tuesday, September 5.  BSS students in grade 9-12 will be able to choose their locker online according to the following schedule:

  • Grade 12 – Tuesday, August 29 @ 8am
  • Grade 11 – Wednesday, August 30 @ 8am
  • Grade 10 – Thursday, August 31 @ 8am
  • Grade 9 – Friday, September 1 @ 8am

To access the online system:

  1. Go to bss.lockerassignment.com
  2. Login using your student number as the user ID and your birthdate as the password, in “YYYYMMDD” format
  3. Select a zone of the school in which you would like to have a locker.  Note that as the lockers in a zone are taken, the zone buttons will change from Yellow (many lockers available), to Orange (over 50% of lockers have capacity assigned) to Red (no lockers available in zone)
  4. When a zone is selected the available lockers will be listed.  A locker entry that is Green is an empty locker, and a locker entry that is Orange is unavailable
  5. Once you have selected a locker you will be shown the locker combination
  6. Once you have selected a locker, you will be unable to change your locker through the online system.  You will need to come to the school and meet with Mr. Pue
  7. After selecting a locker, you can login at any time to see your assigned locker and combination.  It will take you directly to the final screen with your locker number and combination.

Course Schedules

Student schedules will be available starting next week on MyEDBC.  Students can login using their username and password to see their schedule.  This schedule is NOT FINAL and we will have printed final copies available on Wednesday Sept 6.
