​​​​​​​​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.​ ​​​​

Traffic Safety Reminders from The City of Calgary​

The City wants to remind and encourage anyone who is driving children to school to operate their vehicles safely and responsibly. Parents and guardians are reminded not park where it’s prohibited during drop off and pick up times, such as blocking crosswalks, laneways and private driveways.   
Pick up and drop off times can get quite busy. Give yourself extra time to navigate safely around schools, whether you are walking, wheeling, or driving. For those who drive, help alleviate congestion by parking a block or two away and walking in, wherever possible.   
Talk to your kids about safe travel practices like using crosswalks with patrols, looking all ways before crossing the street and not jaywalking across the roadways as a shortcut.

Parking & Drop-Off

Parking and Student Drop-Off

Students may be dropped off and picked up at the front of the school.  It is illegal to park or drop students off in the middle of the crosswalk, in the bus zone, or in the fire entrance of the alley.  When you are dropping off and picking up your child, you may park in the lot along the chain-link fence (adjacent to the alley). Posted CBE signs restrict the use of the staff parking lot (south of the school) for staff only.  

Loading or unloading children in the staff parking lot is prohibited. It is critical that all drivers observe the posted school zone speed limits and remember that the speed limit in the alley is 15 km/h. Cars may not block people’s driveways and cars may not be parked in the alley in a way that they obstruct intended two-way traffic. Most parents find the congestion in the alley very bad and have agreed to treat it as one-way eastbound.

Thank you to all parents who choose safety over convenience when driving children to school.
