Kiss & Drop
On Tuscany Drive, north of the large green fire hydrant just up from the front of the school to the corner will be our "Kiss & Drop". The City of Calgary has placed signs designating this area for drop off/loading zone only during school hours.
We will have staff supervising the Kiss & Drop so parents can pull into the curb, children can get out and be directed to the back of the school and parents can pull through and leave. All students will be directed to the back of the school regardless of entry doors.
School Parking Lot
We need our parents to support us in this huge effort and would greatly appreciate it if parents would honour our requests to not drive into the parking lot since children sometimes will try and shortcut across the parking lot to get to the school.
We would also request parents to not jaywalk children across the street but walk to the marked crosswalks to come to school. The City of Calgary has installed a much-appreciated flashing walk indicator on the corner of Tuscany Drive and Tuscany Way that has been most helpful in improving the safe arrival and departure of children. Please make use of this service to ensure all our students are safe!
At 3:05 PM, all students will be dismissed from their appropriate entry/exit door. Teachers will be out on supervision until 3:15 PM. If there are students who have not been collected by 3:15 PM, they will be scooped and brought to the office so if you arrive after 3:15 PM to pick up your child(ren), please come to the office and get them.
Walking School Bus
Over the next few weeks, the School Council will be exploring options for organizing a walking school bus to promote as much walking to and from school as possible for all our students – especially since we do not have any students living outside our walk zone limits. If you are interested in participating in the walking school bus project, please watch for sign up information or send an email to the School Council Chair, Lisa McGregor at email@example.com.
