School Safety

Student Drop Off/Pick Up

Safety of our students and families is paramount for us.


Parents who are dropping off or picking up their child must be aware of the safe places to do this. Do NOT park in the bus zone in front of the school, even briefly as we have 9 buses that need this space. Also do not park in the Special Needs bus/taxi zone along the rail (across from the tennis courts).


You may park:

  1. By Sir Winston Churchill pool
  2. Brentwood Arena parking
  3. South side of Northmount Drive – Use the 2 designated crosswalks to cross the street
  4. Captain John Palliser School
  5. Batchelor Crescent
  6. Bearspaw Drive

Do not make U-turns on Northmount Drive – it’s illegal and dangerous.


Please use the crosswalks as we teach our children the importance of following traffic rules.
