Ecole John English Junior Middle School can be a very busy place in the morning and when students are dismissed at the end of the day.  The safety of our students is important to us so a number of routines are in place.  We ask that parents and students observe these routines to ensure that all students arrive to school and leave for home safely.

Bus Routes and Times (link will be available at the end of August)

Bus Transportation

Students arriving to school via a school bus are dropped off at the main entrance of the school.  Students are greeted by a staff member and directed through the school to the paved play area. 

Students in Kindergarten to Grade 5, who are eligible for transportation will travel by school bus. Students in Grade 6 to Grade 8 who are eligible for transportation may be provided with TTC tickets if necessary. Transportation forms are to be completed prior to the start of a school year and returned to your child's present school by the first week of June. The forms will then be forwarded to the transportation department for approval. School bus transportation is NOT available to students attending the school under the optional attendance procedures.

On occasion students in Grade 6, 7 or 8 who qualify for transportation may apply for an empty seat on an existing bus route. Applications for an empty seat are due to our school office by the beginning of the third week in September. These forms will be forwarded to the transportation department who will make decisions based upon bus capacity.

Parent Drop-Off and Pick-Up

When parents are dropping off their children or picking them up from school we direct you to the Kiss and Ride zone in the parking lot.  Please enter the George St. parking lot at the south entrance and follow the loop around to drop off or pick up students from entrance 16.  This area is supervised by a parent volunteer who is a member of our Parent Safety Patrol.  If you are interested in assisting with the parent safety patrol, please email

Walking Students

If your child is walking to school, they are to enter the school from the playground located on the east side of the school.  The north entrance to the playground can be accessed from Mimico Ave. and the south entrance of the playground can be accessed from Central Street.
