Traffic Safety

For the safety of our children, please be courteous and consider the following when dropping off or picking up children from school.

  • Avoid double parking.
  • Watch for signs indicating "No Stopping" and "No Parking" zones.
  • Leave 5 meters between your car and any crosswalk markings. This will ensure children are visible when they enter the crosswalk.
  • School bus zones must be kept clear so children can step off the bus and onto a curb instead of exiting into a busy street.
  • Parking too close to stop signs, yield signs or intersections makes it difficult to see children in the area and obstructs the view of other motorists. A distance of 5 meters is required.
  • Blocking entrances to garages or driveways angers neighbours. Stay back at least 1.5 meters.

All parking infractions in school zones are subject to a minimum $50 fine.

Please park responsibly and help make streets safe for our children.
