​​​​​​​​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

Cold Weather

As the temperatures of winter get colder, it is important that student safety be considered when dropping students at school and picking students up after school. In the morning, the school is generally available to students after 7:30 AM. Please wait and watch your student enter the building to ensure that they can enter. After school, we ask that all students arrange drives before 4:00 PM. If a student must wait past this time, we have arranged with Central Memorial High School and the Career and Technology Centre that our students are able to wait in their lobby areas.

Alternative High School is only staffed until 4:00 PM and therefore we want to make sure students can be warm should they need to wait past the 4:00 PM time.
