PARENTS/DAY CARE PROVIDERS WEARING MASKS ON SCHOOL PROPERTY: Just a reminder that if a parent or daycare provider is coming onto school property for drop off or pick up, unless they are in their vehicle in our Kiss N’ Ride, they need to be wearing masks. We would ask that you ensure that this happens as an extra layer of protection for both our staff and students. Thank you for your support 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. Above all, we would ask that respectful and safe practices are top priorities on our school grounds.
