We look forward to another exciting academic year at Broadlands this year.
New PA Day Friday April 15, 2016
All TDSB schools will have a newly designated P.A. Day on Friday, April 15, 2016. This additional P.A. Day has been mandated by the Ministry of Education as a result of provincial labour negotiations. All TDSB schools will be closed to students on Friday, April 15, 2016. On this day, teachers will be taking part in professional development on provincial education priorities identified by the Minister of Education.
New Parking Signage on Broadlands Blvd
The city has approved changes to the parking in front of the school, including a dedicated 'Bus Safety Zone.' City staff will soon be adding new signs to the front of the school. Until then, we ask families to observe the turtles that are placed in front of the school, which indicate that there is no parking between the bus entrance and exit between 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. Click here for a map and a letter from Denzil Minnan-Wong's office outlining the upcoming changes: bus Loading Zone.pdf
Broadlands Kiss & Ride Program
With the cooperation of Officer Neil, our Community Liaison Police Officer, Broadlands has started a Kiss n’ Ride in front of our school. On December 7, we officially launched the program. Parent volunteers meet cars just West of the bus loop entrance, and our Grade 6 Safety Patrol students escort students to their playground. This helps to keep the traffic flow moving and to reduce/eliminate the need for cars to park, either in front of the school or in the parking lot. We need two more parent volunteers one day a week from 8:15-8:30 a.m. to ensure that the Kiss & Ride will take place every day. If you are available, please contact M Duwyn. We do want to ensure that we keep the area around our school as safe as possible for our community. A new Green Kiss & Ride sign has been added to the area, which reads "STUDENT PICK-UP AND DROP-OFF AREA"
A few reminders:
· Pull up as far west as you can in the Kiss n’ Ride area to let other cars in
· Please be respectful of our neighbours: do not block, park or turn around in their driveways.
- Please avoid making a 3 point turn in the bus loop entrance or exit; try Coral Cove Crescent to circle around if you are coming from the east
- Please avoid using the school parking lot for drop offs, start to make use of the Kiss 'n Ride!
· Please leave a few minutes earlier as we all adjust to the changes
