Parking Lot Safety

safety-awareness-clipart-1With more students attending our school this year ( we have gone up four divisions) we have noticed an increase in parking lot safety along with safety issues on 26th Avenue as parents are parking to drop of students.

If you are parking on 26th Avenue please be sure to follow bylaws as you find parking.  We have placed cones on the street to indicate the area you cannot park as it obstructs the crosswalk where students cross.  Student safety is our primary concern.  Please do not drop your children off in the street!  Park your car in a legitimate parking spot and then let your child out of the vehicle.

Our parking lot is very congested during drop off and pick up times –  we all need to work together so students are SAFE.  Here are some simple guidelines to follow:

  • the roundabout is for single lane traffic only (there is no parking or idling in the roundabout)
  • Please stop and drop off your child on the outside of the roundabout, so your child gets out of the car safely onto the sidewalk (not onto the roundabout road where cars are circling)
  • Please park in the visitor parking if you have to (not in the roundabout or in the vehicle lane coming into the school)
  • Pedestrians have the right of way
  • If you find the roundabout area stressful, please park your car down the street and walk your child to the school
  • drive slowly

116139Flossing Contest

All parents have been witness to children flossing.  Not the traditonal flossing that the dentist recommends to prevent cavities, but instead the flossing that became famous by the Backpack Kid who posted the viral move on his Instagram page.  After watching so many of our students doing the floss, we decided to have some fun with it – we are having a contest with the following categories:giphy

Best Class Floss
Fastest Flosser
Most Creative Floss
Best Family Floss
Funniest Floss
Best Floss done by school staff

Contest Rules:

  1. You may enter the contest as an individual or group.
  2. In order to enter the contest you must have your consent form signed so we can post your flossing entry on our school Instagram account.
  3. If you are a group entry then all members of the group must have media consent forms signed.
  4. All entries will be posted on our IG account
  5. Have FUN!

Winners of each category will get a PIZZA PARTY.
