The safety of our students is always our number one priority. Thank you to our families that are respecting our school traffic/parking rules by not entering our bus loop that is reserved for school buses; and using the north side of Old Finch to drop off/pick up their children.
Please help us to be courteous neighbours and community members during the morning and afternoon busy periods: 8:25-8:45 A.M. and 3:10-3:35 P.M. Here are some tips to help alleviate some of our traffic issues:
- Please remember that there is supervision starting at 8:30 in our school yard; so it is safe to drop off your children in the morning at 8:30 to avoid the 8:40-8:45 entry time rush.
- Try walking to school whenever possible.
- Please do not block our neighbour's driveways
If you witness unsafe driving practices happening in front of the school, please notify the police via phone call or by using this link:
If you have a licence plate and/or description of the driver, the police can lay charges for moving violations, if the complainant is willing to go to court and can identify the driver. If the complainant is not willing to go to court, the police will send a letter to the registered owner about traffic safety.
