​Traffic Safety

Ensuring our students get to school safely is everyone’s responsibility. Please be mindful of crosswalks, parking rules and speed limits when you are near our schools, especially during the morning drop-off and afternoon dismissal times.​ ​​​

Use the Hug and Go Lane

The staff parking lot is reserved for Citadel Park Staff and Calgary Board of Education personnel. Since all parking spots have been assigned and paid for, we request your cooperation in not parking in this lot. Please note, when dropping off and/or picking up children at the front of the school (Citadel Drive), be extremely careful of all our students as this area tends to become very congested and visibility is often difficult. Because of this, parents who drive their children are encouraged to use the “Hug and Go” lane directly in front of the playground area. This is a no park zone where children can be safely dropped off. 

The busing lanes in front of the school are also areas restricted to buses and emergency vehicles only and may only be used for dropping off students when buses are not present. Parents are asked to exercise patience when dropping off their children and are reminded to obey the no U-Turn signs and four-way stops. It is expected that parents will also adhere to our policy of respecting other parents and school administration when bringing their children to and from school. Thank you for making this a safe and positive experience for one and all.

In summary:

  • fenced parking lot is for staff only
  • gravel parking lot is city property
  • parking on grassed areas could result in a parking ticket by police or by-law officers
  • do not use the busing lanes at the front of the school before 9:30 AM (as there may be late buses) or at dismissal time
