LOST AND FOUND POLICY:The CrossCurrents Dance Council will do its best to recover lost items and return them to their owners. Found items will be locked in our dance cabinet in a locked room off the gym. We will list the items on our website, and they will be kept for 3 months, and then given away if unclaimed.
Dancers MUST NOT VISIT OR CALL THE SCHOOL to retrieve their lost items; it's against school policy, and school employees have no access to our locked cabinet anyway. TO RECOVER LOST ITEMS, please call the dance council (numbers below) or attend the next dance to get the item back. If it's urgent that you recover the item sooner than the next dance, the dance council will make arrangements with our contact at the school to retrieve the item.
