STUDENT SAFETY: Parking Lot/Drop-Off/Pick-Up
With an increase in parents dropping-off and picking-up students, it is important that parents model safe procedures and behaviour at all times. This includes not jaywalking, and not crossing the street between stopped buses.
The parking lot is a particularly dangerous place for students. Please do not pick-up or drop-off students in the staff parking lot. Students should not walk through any section of the parking lot in order to reach the playground and the school.
It is a City of Calgary traffic violation to park a vehicle behind a garage door including across the alley from a garage. Please do not park your vehicle in areas that will impede cars from entering and exiting garages that back onto the alley.
If you are using the lane at the west side of the school as a drop-off zone, the safest place to do so is to the south of the mesh fencing. Here students can exit the car safely and proceed directly onto the school grounds. The south side of 120th Avenue is a school bus zone so no parking is allowed in that area. If you drop-off your child, on the north side of 120th Avenue, make sure that they do not jaywalk, but use the pedestrian crossing to get to and from the school grounds. Please respect our very long bus zone area. It would be unfortunate to see any of our parents issued a ticket. We appreciate the many parents who put safety first when their children come to and go home from school. Nobody wants one of our students to be hurt in these potentially dangerous areas.
March Student-Led Conferences
All student-led conferences will all be held on Thursday, March 23, 2017 from 8:00 am - 1:00 pm and 3:00 pm - 7:00 pm. As these are student-led conferences, your child should be in attendance. Our online booking manager link will be accessible on our Lake Bonavista School website starting March 16th at 9:00 am.
Please come to the conferences with your child, as he or she will be leading you through the classroom, and together you will be exploring their work and learning progress. There will not be time set aside for individual meetings with teachers at student-led conferences as there will be more than one family in the room at a time. If you feel the need, please contact the teacher directly and book an appointment after Spring Break. Please remember that Friday, March 24 is a non-instructional day so students will not be attending school.
