Not sure what you mean? As in the teacher taking some object belonging to a student to keep during class as a 'punishment' e.g.?

For example in an exam, they have some notes, books, portables etcc.. on the table, and you want them to put them away ??????

Estoy de acuerdo con Empanada: "Put your stuff away".

O, bueno, "Clear your desks" (quitad las cosas de vuestras mesas).

hi RDB - it is correct to say "once you finish...", "once you're finished..."
or "once you have (you've) finished...".

Guardad las cosas = Put everything away / Put your things away.

When you have finished you can leave.
