Our parking lot is a busy place! Sometimes, it can get a little too busy and sometimes, it can be just plain crazy!
When the parking lot looks and feels out of control, here is a “Top Ten List” of tips that will help things flow quite a bit smoother.
Please do not ever park in the bus lane unless you are a LICENSED daycare provider and you are dropping off or picking up children in your care. It goes without saying, this does not apply to the times you are picking up only your children/grandchildren. Please see me for a pass that you can display on your dash to indicate that you are a LDP.
Please do not ever park in the blue disabled parking spots unless you have clearly displayed your permit on your mirror.
Please do not ever park where there are yellow hash marks painted on the concrete.
Please do not use your mobile phone in our parking lot unless you have a Bluetooth or other hands free device.
For our grade 5, 6 and 7 parents, if your schedule permits it, you may want to consider a slightly later pick-up time (5-7 minutes) to give the parking lot a chance to clear out a little. We provide supervision until 2:45 and Shannon and I are always outside until 2:50 or later.
Again, if time allows, you may consider parking a block or two away on Townsite, East Wellington, Bowen, or Bush and walking to the school from there.
Children must use the crosswalk at the front doors to get to the sidewalk.
Please slow down in our lot, at the Legion, and on the streets surrounding the school.
Please do not ever park at 4D Feet Podiatrist
Above all else, please be safe, kind, and courteous.
My apologies if any of this comes across as too restrictive or stringent but we must have some practices in place to ensure the safety of our entire school community.
Thanks so much for your consideration in this matter,

The bell schedule for our early dismissal days is changing. Currently, we dismiss at 1:15 to recess and parents have been able to come at that time for pick-up. We now will be having a regular recess outside in the back of the school from 1:10-1:25. Students will then return to classrooms to gather their things and will be dismissed for the day at 1:30. Please make plans to pick children up at that time from now on. This does not apply to Mondays when there is no early dismissal for PLCs.
