We encourage walking or cycling to school to improve students’ concentration and overall health, plus with the current construction projects, it may be faster for students to walk in groups, so parents don’t need to add any more time on to their morning. If the walk is greater than 15 minutes; drive to 5, which is driving a few blocks from school and allowing students the chance to get some fresh air and exercise.
It is a good idea to remind our students how to be safe pedestrians and cyclists by using – STOP – LOOK and LISTEN while traveling to and from school. ICBC has a great parent guide to assist with your conversation.
Drive to 5 Locations and Parking Locations
These are some areas where you can park and walk with your child to school or drop off and they walk with friends:
Sonora Place cul-de-sac
Cliffridge Ave before and after the drop off/ pick up zone
Ranger above the school and walk through the forest
Sarita Pl. and take trail to Sonora Pl
The Traffic Safety program at Montroyal is a joint effort between the School Administration and our Grade 5 parent volunteers and student safety patrollers. This program provides not only a safer place for all of our children during pick-up time at Montroyal, it also provides an opportunity for the student patrollers to learn leadership and teamwork skills, and to develop maturity.
