​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.​ ​​​

In order to keep all of our community safe we are requesting that drivers only park in the designated “P” (parking) areas. These areas should also be used for dropping off or picking up students. Bus zones, Handicap Parking zones and the school parking lot should not be used at anytime for dropping off or picking up students. This is in accordance with CBE policy to ensure the safety of all students. This policy also applies to Summit Kids program participants.

Please also note that there is no reason for any person, other than staff members, to access the staff parking lot. All spots are assigned to staff members, and the parking lot doors are always locked. Summit Kids access is through the main doors. Thank you in advance for choosing safety over convenience, and for obeying the law. Please be familiar with the area map below.

It is preferable, if you are dropping off your children at school, that you park so that they exit vehicles on the school side of the street. If you are parking on the other side of the street, please insist that your children use the crosswalks, and not jay walk. Parents jaywalking between buses is problematic, and we ask that parents obey the law and not jaywalk. Pedestrians should cross the street at corners and crosswalks only. Our school safety patrollers patrol the crosswalk closest to the school site.

School Bus Zone

We would like to remind all parents that the bus loading/unloading zone in front of our school is designated only for our school buses. The bus drivers must be able to bring their bus close to the curb in order to safely drop-off and pick-up our students. This becomes very difficult and unsafe when there are parent vehicles parked in this area. We ask that if you must leave your vehicle parked for a short time, to use the designated parking areas only. We have 6 busses this year, and they require all the space in the bus zone…right up to the crosswalk! Thank you for your help in keeping our bus zone a safe area.

Playground Supervision

Student supervision begins at 8:55 AM. Students should not arrive prior to that time. At the end of the day, students are expected to go home directly when they are dismissed in the afternoon. There is no formal supervision after school.

School Patrols

In order to ensure our Grade 5 and 6 students are adequately trained in the job of School Patrols we will be working with Calgary City Police and the Alberta Motor Association during the month of September. Please remind your child that if they need to cross Silvergrove Drive when they come to school, to always cross at the south crosswalk (by our parking lot.) Patrols will start the first day of school. Thank you to all our students for their leadership!
