​​​​​​​​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.​ ​​​​

Traffic Safety Reminders from The City of Calgary​

The City wants to remind and encourage anyone who is driving children to school to operate their vehicles safely and responsibly. Parents and guardians are reminded not park where it’s prohibited during drop off and pick up times, such as blocking crosswalks, laneways and private driveways.   
Pick up and drop off times can get quite busy. Give yourself extra time to navigate safely around schools, whether you are walking, wheeling, or driving. For those who drive, help alleviate congestion by parking a block or two away and walking in, wherever possible.   
Talk to your kids about safe travel practices like using crosswalks with patrols, looking all ways before crossing the street and not jaywalking across the roadways as a shortcut.

Parking & Drop-Off

  • We urge parents to reinforce street crossing safety training by encouraging your children to use proper crossing techniques.
  • Please be aware of drop off times as indicated on the signs in front of the school. 
  • We ask that you are mindful of our neighbors driveways and do not block them. 

School Parking Lot

Stopping or parking in the parking lot is prohibited as all of the stalls are reserved for staff. The parking lot is out of bounds for all students. Driving cars into the parking lot to pick children up is prohibited because it is very unsafe for the children. 

Families accessing Belfast Student Care are reminded that they are to drop off and pick up on 12th Avenue.

School Patrols (ON HOLD) 

Grade 5 and 6 students provide school patrol service to our school. Students are required to follow directions from patrollers and always cross the street at a crosswalk. Please watch out for our patrollers and all students when you drive near the school.

Thank you for your cooperation in these matters.
