COMMUNITY PARKS: South Simcoe Police has shared with us their concerns about the large number of
students who are at the local parks after school who are not wearing masks and not physically distancing.
South Simcoe Police is recommending that during the Stay at Home order, students leave school and go
directly home at dismissal time. Please review this with your children. Thanks for your support with this.
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!
KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION: If someone in your household or in your neighbourhood is turning 4 years
old in 2021, it is time for them to register to start Kindergarten this coming September! Registration can
take place online at https://www.scdsb.on.ca/elementary/planning_for_school/registration - if you need
assistance, do not hesitate to contact our school office.

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
