Parking

A New Year to be Neighborly and Safe

Picking up and dropping off students can be a challenge.  It takes the cooperation of everyone to ensure the safety of our students and a positive relationship with members of our community.  Please adhere to the following rules.

Street in Front of the School

Parking/stopping in the bus zone is prohibited.  This space must be available for buses at all times. 

Help students walk across the street at safe locations.  Walking between buses is extremely dangerous and often surprises drivers who are not expecting someone to emerge from between buses.  This is made worse with snow and ice on the road making sudden stops difficult.

Doing U turns in front of the school and in the alley is dangerous and prohibited. 

Alley

Several of our neighbors have garages that back onto the alley.  Please refrain from parking/stopping in front of garages on either side of the alley.  This is a violation of the parking bylaw and makes it difficult for neighbors to get in and out of their garages.  It also brings negative attention to our school. 

The alley is not a good place for drop off and pick up.  The number of garages in the alley leave very little stopping spots available.  The alley can become very congested.  Traffic lineups occur when people park where it is unlawful to do so, turn around in the alley, or attempt to exit the alley onto Elbow Drive.  Driving conditions worsen in the alley during the winter increasing hazards of slipping and becoming stuck.

Let’s work together to show good character and create a safe environment for our kids.

PARKING REMINDER!

Picking Up and Dropping Off Students

Picking up and dropping off students can be a challenge. It takes the cooperation of everyone to ensure the safety of our students and a positive relationship with members of our community. Please adhere to the following rules.

Street in Front of the School

Parking (even for a second) in the bus zone is prohibited. This space must be available for buses at all times.

Help students walk across the street at safe locations. Walking between buses is extremely dangerous.

The front street is narrow making it difficult for cars to travel in both directions. This situation is made worse with parents doing U turns. U turns also create a very dangerous situation for pedestrians crossing the street.

Parking on corners is prohibited and makes it difficult for cars, and especially buses, to travel around the corner to Elbow Drive.

Alley

Several of our neighbors have garages that back onto the alley. Please refrain from parking (even for a moment) in front of garages or in front of the fence where there are “no parking” signs. The width of the alley has been measured and “no parking” signs placed where the alley is too narrow to allow for traffic to travel alongside parked cars. The alley can become very congested. Traffic lineups can occur when people park in the narrow part of the alley, turn around in the alley, or attempt to exit the alley onto Elbow Drive. Driving conditions worsen in the alley during the winter increasing hazards of slipping and becoming stuck.

Winter Safety

Now that winter weather has arrived, extra precautions are necessary to keep everyone safe. Road ways and alleys can be slippery making it difficult for parents and students to walk on solid footing and for drivers to stop. The following precautions will be essential to keep everyone safe.

  1. Avoid crossing the road between buses. This makes it difficult for drivers to see pedestrians and stop safely. This is true year round but especially an issue during winter road conditions.
  2. Park in designated spots in the alley only (not beside the fence where it indicates that it is a no parking zone).
  3. Avoid parking on the other side of the alley in front of garages. Not only does this narrow the alley passage for vehicles, it also prevents the neighbors from entering/existing their garages.
  4. Avoid leaving children unsupervised outside at the end of the school day.
  5. Dress appropriately for the weather.
  6. Sign up for bus notifications. Winter weather can often result in traffic/accidents and late buses.
  7. It is dark now in the mornings. Please be mindful that it is much more difficult to see students wearing dark clothing.

Let’s work together to be safe during the winter season.
