SAFETY FIRST

We cannot compromise children's safety. The safety patrol is out everyday. However they only monitor the crosswalk. Supervisors have had to talk to a number of parents/guardians/ older siblings who have come to pick up children about a number of safety issues. We have had a number of individuals:

- park in areas designated as no stopping areas as well as pull u-turns along the street in front of the school

- cars pulling up on the sidewalks while doing a u-turn when students are walking near-by

- jay-walk near the school buses

As a result we ask that you:

Please do not park in the "No Parking Zone"

this includes the Staff Parking Lot (parking privileges are granted for special circumstances, please contact the office to set these up) or the "No Stopping Zones"

Please do not make U-turns in the cross-walks or in front of the school grounds

Please do not block the cross walks or driveways of neighbourhood houses

while waiting for your child to come out.

Use the cross-walks where the safety patrol is regulating traffic

Thank you to the families who give high priority to the safety of all our children. One injury is too many. Please take a little time to insure the students of our community are safe. It may mean that a student has to walk a little further to the car or you have to drive an extra couple of blocks to get home but IT IS WORTH IT if a child never gets hurt!

The Regina Police Service has been at our school issuing tickets in violation of the traffic signs, which are posted in front of the school. They will continue to be monitoring our school area. Thanks for your support and cooperation!
