With an increase in parents dropping-off and picking-up students, it is important that parents model safe procedures and behaviour at all times. This includes not jaywalking, and not crossing the street between stopped buses.
The parking lot is a particularly dangerous place for students. Please do not pick-up or drop-off students in the staff parking lot. Students should not walk through any section of the parking lot in order to reach the playground and the school.
It is a City of Calgary traffic violation to park a vehicle behind a garage door including across the alley from a garage and 1.5 meters on either side. Please do not park your vehicle in areas that will impede cars from entering and exiting garages that back onto the alley.
If you are using the lane at the west side of the school as a drop- off zone, the safest place to do so is to the south of the mesh fencing. Here students can exit the car safely and proceed directly onto the school grounds.
The south side of 120th Avenue is a school bus zone so no parking is allowed in that area. If you drop-off your child, on the north side of 120th Avenue, make sure that they do not jaywalk, but use the pedestrian crossing to get to and from the school grounds.
Please respect our very long bus zone area. It would be unfortunate to see any of our parents issued a ticket. We appreciate the many parents who put safety first when their children come to and go home from school. Nobody wants one of our students to be hurt in these dangerous areas.
Bicycle and Skateboard Safety
Children may ride their bikes and skateboards to school. However, please remind them they need to walk their bikes and skateboards across the streets and on the school grounds. The school cannot take responsibility for the security of skateboards in the school or bicycles on our playground. Allowing skateboards in the building is at the discretion of a
school. Please have your child discuss with their classroom teacher the possibility of bringing their skateboard to school prior to doing so. All children should be aware of the rules for bicycle safety. Remember: it is the law for children to wear helmets when riding. Students should provide locks for each bike. The bike racks are out-of-bounds during school hours.
