Parking & Drop-Off Zone

TRAFFIC NOTICE!

Dear Parents,

Our goal as a school community is to ensure a safe and expeditious drop-off and pick-up of students from the school. By promoting relevant information through notices via email and newsletters, and working with road transport authorities, we are obligated to develop management plans and school road safety policies. The school can assist by educating the school community to deal with illegal parking around our school.

This traffic notice is intended to give parents/drivers guidance and direction to ensure that in the vicinity of the school property, road safety practices are adequate to protect the safety of students, staff, visitors and road users.

 We, as a school community, must ensure that pedestrian and vehicular traffic movements and behaviour are conducted in accordance with the rules and regulations of our city by-laws.

–        The majority of school zones operate between 8:00am – 5:00pm on school days.

–        Motorists are required to drive no more than 30km/hour through school zones.

–        Pedestrian crossing can occur ONLY at the intersection of West 73rd Avenue & Montcalm Streets.

Please note: School principals may report illegally parked vehicles to the Police or local authorities.

Please be reminded of the following protocols regarding Morning Drop-off and After School Pick-up. The marked zone in front of the school on West 73rd Avenue is designated for morning drop-off & after school pick-up only.
