​​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.​ ​​​​

Parking & Drop-Off

Traffic Concerns

Traffic volumes and congestion in the area of the school pose a significant safety concern. Each year there are many parents who report close calls and dangerous driving outside the school. As part of a caring school community we are all responsible for child safety. Our children are too important to take chances.

The bus zone and the handicap parking zone on the south side of the school are marked by city signs as well as orange cones. It is essential to respect these zones as they are used every day, both before and after school. There is a 30 km/hr speed limit around the school from 7:30 am - 9:00 PM.

Parents and caregivers must not use the staff parking lot to drop off children at any time.

School Patrols

Grade 5 and 6 students serve as safety patrols to ensure the safety and security of all students crossing the street at 16th Street and 45th Avenue. This is done on a volunteer basis and is part of our commitment to developing leaders at Altadore School. Students are trained by our Calgary Police School Constable. The safety patrols are “on duty” from 3:15 to 3:25 PM and are not available in the morning. We request that all students and adults follow the direction of the patrols when crossing the street.

Please be respectful and assist the patrols by crossing at the crosswalks and by driving carefully. Remember that the speed limit is 30 km per hour and the Altadore playground zone operates from 7:30 am to 9:00 PM every day throughout the year.
