Now that we have been back from the Summer Break for a few weeks and students are settled with drop offs and bus registration, it is time for a parking lot safety reminder. If your child must be driven to school instead of taking one of our two buses, please adhere to the following, for the safety of children (and adults too) during the busy drop off and pick up times: 
  • Please park in the parking stalls rather than stopping or idling your vehicle in the queue.
  • There are Zones that must be free of vehicles: in front of the steel fence where buses must stop AND beside the Fernwood signboard at the exit. Buses cannot navigate a right turn if a car is parked there causing delays.
  • Staff Parking was allocated to help free up spots for parents in the front lot. Please do not park in the Staff Parking area. 
  • There are both children and adults on foot in the parking lot at these very busy times. Please drive slowly and carefully using extra caution. 
  • The school zone speed limit along Fernwood Road is a maximum of 30 km/hr.  
   and it's a definite "no-no" to drive in the EXIT way that is marked EXIT. Please enter through the proper ENTRANCE.
