Drop off and Pick up:
Please consider the following:
- The Kiss & Ride on Broadlands Blvd will begin on the first day of school. Look for the adults wearing safety vests east of the driveway.
- The easiest way to enter the Kiss & Ride zone is from the east on Broadlands Boulevard.
- If at all possible, please consider walking to school, parking down the street or on a side street that accesses the back field and walk your child to the school until buses are running.
- The bus loop and the parking lot are closed to parents at pick up and drop off times.
Parking and Kiss & Ride
With the cooperation of our Community Liaison Police Officer, Broadlands has a Kiss n’ Ride in front of our school. School staff and parent volunteers meet cars just West of the bus loop entrance, and our 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 do want to ensure that we keep the area around our school as safe as possible for our community. A Green Kiss & Ride sign identifies the area, which reads "STUDENT PICK-UP AND DROP-OFF AREA."
Please be mindful of where you park around the school. The bus loop is unavailable to car traffic between 7:30 and 4:00. Also, please be respectful of our Broadlands community, including ensuring that our neighbours are able to access their driveways at all times.
