DROP OFF/PICK UP - TRAFFIC SAFETY
Posted on March 15th, 2016
There are concerns in regards to safety during daily dropping off and picking up of students. Please make sure to follow all traffic laws, and watch out for children on or near the road.
For parents whose children walk to school, please have a conversation with them about crossing the street using the crosswalk, and ONLY when it is safe to do so.
For parents dropping their children off, please remember the south side of 22nd Ave in front of Jennie Emery is a Student Drop off Zone from 8:00am - 9:00am, Monday – Friday. Parking in this area is not allowed during this time, in order to eliminate bottle-necking and make drop offs as safe as possible.
PLEASE ALSO NOTE - IT IS NEVER ACCEPTABLE TO STOP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD TO LET STUDENTS OUT. THIS CREATES A HUGE SAFETY HAZARD AND BOTTLENECK.
The Staff Parking Lot/Bus Loop to the west of the school is not available for pick-up/drop-off or public/parent parking. Please do not use this parking lot.
We also ask that you be courteous to the residents around the school and do not block or use private driveways to turn around in.
Our main concern is for the safety of ALL CHILDREN. Please make sure to abide by all traffic lawas and watch out for children on or near the roads. THE RCMP HAVE BEEN ASKED TO MONITOR THE TRAFFIC SURROUNDING THE SCHOOL, AND TICKETS WILL BE ISSUED FOR OFFENCES.
