​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

Parking

In order to avoid a potentially dangerous situation, parents are reminded not to use the Staff parking lot to drop off or pick up students. Please comply with the posted No Parking / No Drop Off sign for the safety of all concerned.

A “No Parking” zone is in place on 146 Avenue in front of the main school entrance. This area is for bus and emergency vehicle access. Please do not park or stop in this area.  

The Handicap Loading/Parking zone on 146 Avenue in front of the main school entrance requires a Handicap Permit to park/unload. 

U-turns and jaywalking are illegal in a school zone. Parents are asked to take the time to emphasize safety over convenience.

School Safety Patrols

Two school patrol crossings on the east and west sides of the school on 146th Avenue are in operation. All pedestrians are required to cross at the patrolled crosswalk and to obey instructions of the patrol team.
