Safe Travel Plan

Safe Travel Plan

The Safe Travel Committee has wrapped up their first year. With the completion of surveys, traffic counts and a walkabout with city officials, there are many upcoming changes to the school and neighborhood that will make walking to school safer for your child starting next school year. The completion of two new pedestrian crossings this summer will make walking to school safer for your child. They will be located at Whisker St and Chambers Ave, and Firefly Drive and Repton Ave. For parents who chose to drive to school please watch for changes. The biggest change is the closure of the Daycare/North Drop n’ Go. Parents are no longer invited to park there as it is for parents of daycare age children and daycare staff, which has not been the case until now. Please look for safety updates to the remaining south parking lot Drop n’ Go. As always, please do not park in the north staff parking lot or handicapped spots. Please be advised that one Drop n’ Go will not be able to process double the amount of cars in a 10 minute period before and after the bell. Please start thinking about the possibility of letting your child walk to school, letting your child walk halfway to school themselves, or driving your child half way and walking the rest. The committee looks forward to seeing more of you and your children walking to school in the upcoming school year.
