START OF DAY SUPERVISION: Just a reminder that supervision on our yard, does not begin prior to 9:00 a.m. Students cannot be dropped off prior to this time. While there are adults on the yard, prior to 9:00 a.m., these are Bradford Progress Daycare Staff and are not responsible for students outside their Before and After School care. Thanks for your co-operation with this.

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. Due to some parking lot construction that took place over the summer some of our bike racks were moved by the portables adjacent to Miller Park Avenue. Students are also welcome to lock their bikes temporarily on the school fence in this area. 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 co-operation with this matter.
