Traffic Safety: STAY ALERT!
We encourage walking or cycling to school to improve students’ concentration and overall health, even a few blocks or through the forest makes a difference. If driving please review the drop zone process Getting to School Safely to ensure a steady flow of traffic. Remember you are driving through a residential area, watch your speed, particularly on Prospect, it is a 30km zone. We have received complaints from residents, drive down the street as if it where your own neighbourhood.
Do you have a student in Grade 5?
Children entering grade 5 for the 2017-2018 school year take on the task of Traffic Duty, now called the Move It Team. Shifts are available for before and after school to accommodate various schedules.
Please see HERE under "Getting to School Safely - Move It Team " for the duties involved, sign up sheet and access to an incident feedback form.
