Lost & Found

  • The ETHS Safety Department maintains a lost and found for misplaced items found around campus, and also for some items left on ETHS Wildkit mini buses. The most commonly located items include keys, wallets, glasses, cell phones, and student ID cards.
    Reporting Lost Items
    If you have lost an item on campus, you can check the school's lost and found by filling out and submitting the Lost Property Report Form. The ETHS Safety Department will check all existing lost property upon receipt of your form and will contact you if they have an item matching your lost item’s description. If there is nothing matching your lost item they will continue to check your report with all future items that are turned in during the course of the school year.
    Reporting Stolen Items
    If you believe your lost property has actually been stolen, you will need to speak to a Safety Department staff member in person to make an official incident report in addition to filing a Lost Property Report with ETHS.

    As a first step, fill out and submit the Lost Property Report Form. Next, visit the Safety Office in room H102 during school business hours or call 847-424-7500 to set up a time to speak with a Safety Department staff member to report your property stolen. In the event of suspected theft, parents/guardians and students can also file a report with the Evanston Police Department.
    Retrieving Lost or Stolen Items
    Anyone claiming lost or stolen property must have proof of submitting a Lost Property Report Form and must show a current, valid form of identification such as an ETHS student ID, passport, or driver's license. Anyone claiming stolen property also must have proof of submitting an official incident report with the Safety Department staff.
    Turning In Found Items
    If you have found an item on campus belonging to someone else, please turn it in at the Safety Office in H102 during school business hours, or to the Safety Kiosk in the South Wing at Entrance 2 after hours.
    Unclaimed Property
    Unclaimed items will be held for at least 90 days, after which time items may be discarded or donated to a charitable organization.
    ETHS District 202 does not assume responsibility for any lost, damaged, or stolen personal property brought to school or to a school activity. Students are encouraged to register their personal property with serial numbers (electronic devices and bicycles) in their myETHS account.
