Parking & Drop-Off

Idling Cars/Parking Issues

For families who drop off/pick up their children from school we would like to ask that you do not leave your car idling whilst waiting in the neighborhood.  Please help to keep our air cleaner for our children by turning off your engine.  We very much appreciate your assistance in this.

The parking lot is designated for staff only as we share it with our two lease programs. Please refrain from using it for student pick-up and drop-off before and after school for children’s safety.  If you are volunteering, there are a few labelled visitor spots or pop in to the office and ask which spots are available for that day.

Please be reminded that when dropping off your children at school, be aware of the safety of our students and show courtesy to others. Recently we have been made aware by the City of Calgary Police of a number of complaints about parents parking in front of the school unsafely, letting children out on the driver’s side and pulling out without looking.  

Others have expressed concern about parents dropping students off in the staff parking lot as this causes congestion for staff coming and going and puts little ones at risk as they cross through the lot.  Understandably, there is very little space for parking, but children can walk down a block and a little fresh air is healthy, so please look for places to stop that do not impact safety or others’ exits and entrances.

Parking Around Schools: Photo Enforcement

Calgary Parking Authority is helping to make school areas safer for our students and school communities. Here’s what you should know.

  1. The Calgary Parking Authority is now using photo enforcement in addition to Enforcement Officers in school
  2. areas, so tickets may be received in the mail or placed on vehicles that are in violation of parking regulations.
  3. You must follow posted signage, even if you remain in your vehicle.

Parking responsibly around schools is very important for the safety of the students attending these schools and members of the community.
