If you would like to request one, please let your child’s teacher know and we will send some home with them (dependent on availability). WATER FOUNTAINS RE-OPENED: After over two year of closing off our water fountains, they have been turned back on for staff and student use. Since water fountains and refillable water bottle stations are available for use, the office will no longer be providing cups or plastic water bottles for students. DAILY COVID 19 SCREENING FOR STUDENTS: Please ensure that your child(ren) review the Covid 19 screening tool each day, prior to coming to school: https://covid-19.ontario.ca/school-screening/ 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 number 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. 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. Furthermore, we would ask that our families do not block our neighbour’s driveway when picking up or dropping off students. We have heard from our By-Law officers who have shared that this has been a growing concern in our community. 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.
