PARENTS/GUARDIANS Safety and Courtesy at Car loop and Parking Lots

Parent(s)/Guardian(s) please do:

  • Walk students safely to and from the cars (walk on the sidewalks and avoid cutting across the loop/parking lot)
  • Do not leave children in the car unattended
  • Ensure all children are wearing seatbelts and are using car/booster seats as required by Ontario's transportation laws
  • School starts at 9:00 am, students are to arrive earlier, walk around to their entry/exit door, and should not enter the school through the front door. Please note, staff supervise 5 min. before entry time.
  • Pick up is at 3:10 pm 
  • Students should be picked up from their entry/exit doors and should not exit the school through the front door.
  • The car loop is a no parking zone, drivers must remain in their car. We request your co-operation with this as staff supervision in the car loop is to ensure student safety.
  • Be the model of positive behavior during this busy time. Remember the children are watching and listening to us.

We Remember

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
