​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

Student Parking

We have two student parking areas. 

 Area 1 is located on the east side of the school and is shared with Staff.  Student parking and staff parking areas are clearly marked with signs and stalls are numbered. All students parking in Area 1 will have an assigned stall and must display a corresponding parking pass. 

Area 2 is  located in YMCA Lot 1 which is the western most parking lot at the YMCA; again it is clearly marked. All students parking in Area 2 must display a parking pass and stalls are first come first served. We will only sell enough passes for available spots. (The one row facing John Laurie Blvd. is YMCA parking.)

Parking Passes are purchased through our Business Office at a cost of: Area 1 – $40 and Area 2 – $25.  Passes will be allocated by a draw system starting with  Grade 12, then Grade 11 and then Grade 10 students. All applications for the draw are to be received by the Main Office by Sept. 7 at noon.  Payment is to be made after the draw.

Grade 12 Students:

Grade 12 students wishing to purchase Area 1 will be entered into a draw for an allocated space.   Students not receiving a stall will be offered an Area 2 pass at the lower rate.  Grade 12 may purchase an Area 2 pass from Sept 5.

Grade 11 Students:

Grade 11 students wishing to purchase a parking pass will be entered into a draw for any remaining stalls after the Grade 12 draw.  The draw for any remaining Area 1 stalls will be made first then all remaining applications will be placed in the draw for Area 2.

Grade 10 Students:

Grade 10 students wishing to purchase a parking pass will be entered into a draw for any remaining stalls after the Grade 11 draw.  The draw for any remaining Area 1 stalls will be made first then all remaining applications will be placed in the draw for  Area 2.

Students will be issued with a colour coded and numbered tag, please ensure that it is visible at all times when using either student parking lot. If your tag is not visible or you are not in a marked stall you may be fined or towed.  It is also important to keep your vehicle locked at all times.

Parking Regulations

  2. Please do not hang out in the parking lot.
