We are providing direction in the interest of student safety. We would also ask that our disabled parking spaces are not blocked. The parking lot will be closed from 3:20 p.m. – 3:40 p.m. each day to ensure minimal traffic on school property during dismissal time. This is to ensure the safety of our students. Also, when coming to the school during school hours (including break time), we would ask that you park by the office and the side of the building. Please be cautious when driving on our neighbouring streets to ensure student/pedestrian safety. South Simcoe Police and By-Law officers have informed us that they will be monitoring our school neighbourhood regularly during school entry and exit times. </p><p>Toiletry Drive: The Chris Hadfield Social Justice Team is organizing a collection for the local Women’s Shelter.
