School Council Meetings
We have an active school council who meet the second Monday of each month at
6:30 pm. All parents are welcome. Please add these dates to your calendar:
School Council - Traffic & Pedestrian Safety
Parking Zones and Idling
The safety and wellbeing of all children at Capitol Hill School is our greatest concern. A top
safety issue discussed every year at School Council is parking while dropping off or picking up
our kids. During the past summer, the City of Calgary installed a sidewalk along the north of our
school on 22nd Ave. With our new sidewalk, the City also installed two curb cuts to access the
two parking lots. The two parking lots are intended exclusively for teacher's use. For parents
that are dropping off or picking up their kids, we ask that you only use the recommended dropoff
areas and not use the parking lots at any time during the school day as there is ample street
parking (see attached map of recommended drop-off areas).
In addition, with the temperature slowly dropping, we encourage you not to “idle” your vehicle
while parked around the school. Parking in designated zones and reducing the toxic fumes of
idling will greatly enhance the safety and wellbeing of everyone accessing Capitol Hill School.
Thank you for supporting the use of our designated parking zones!
