Keep Our School Zone Safe!

Embedded image permalink

A huge thank you to members of the Regina Police Service who were helping to keep our School Zone safe.  In recent months, many motorists have surpassed the speed limit through our school zone, putting our kids at risk.  As well, many parents picking up kids at noon and the end of the day have disregarded the hard working safety patrol volunteers, also putting our children's safety in jeopardy.  

A few reminders:

1)  Please obey the 40 km/hour limit posted speed limit around our school.

2)  Kindly obey the Safety Patrol members, and follow their lead on when to cross the street, and when to stop for pedestrians.

3)  Please refrain from parking in the crosswalk at the front of the school, the bus pick up zone, and other posted areas of No Parking.  Your assistance with this increases the sight lines around the school.

Thank you for your co-operation in keeping our students, who are excited and enthusiastic at the end of the day, safe and sound!
