Messages: 

LOST AND FOUND ITEMS: Lost and Found Items will be on display during the week of November 18th – 22nd . When you are in for your child’s student conference, please take some time to look through the lost and found and claim any items that belong to your child. After November 22nd, items will be packed up and donated to a charitable organization. 

TOONIES FOR TECHNOLOGY: During Student Conferences, Student Leaders will be in the front foyer collecting donations of toonies (or any denomination) on behalf of School Council. All donations will go towards purchasing technology for student use. Donations can also be made on School Cash Online.

YARD AND PARKING LOT: Just a reminder to all of our families that supervision does not start on the yard until 9:00 a.m. Please do not drop off your child before-hand. When dropping off your child, please do not come onto the school yard as we need to ensure that only staff and students are in the enclosed area. This practice is to ensure the safety of all students. We would also ask that you follow the direction of all school staff both on the yard and in the parking lot. We are working collaboratively to foster a safe school environment for all. Your support is greatly appreciated. 

PARKING LOT: The entrance coming into our school on West Park Avenue is closed from 9:00 a.m. until 3:45 p.m. This entrance will be used for bussing and Emergency vehicles only during this time. We have had to make this decision due to the numbers of vehicles speeding through this area, creating unsafe conditions. There have also been numerous occasions where people have parked in the fire safety zones preventing Emergency vehicles from accessing these locations. Visitors can access our parking lot behind the school using the Miller Park Avenue entrance during school hours. We would ask that parents/guardians please follow the directions of our staff on duty in the parking lot, before and after school. 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 continues be closed from 3:20 p.m. – 3:45 p.m. each day to ensure minimal traffic on school property during dismissal time. We have connected with South Simcoe Police and By-Law officers who have informed us that they will be monitoring our school neighbourhood regularly during school entry and exit times. 

Walking To School: As our school and community continues to grow, traffic congestion within our school parking lot and surrounding streets is a safety concern for our students and families. Chris Hadfield Public School is a designated walking school and we would ask that families make a concerted effort to have students walk to and from school. This would establish healthy routines for students and promote an environmentally friendly practice. We continue to work with our partners at South Simcoe Police and the town of Bradford to ensure the safety of all of our community stakeholders. We appreciate your cooperation with this matter.
