Traffic and Safety

With the winter now upon us, and the prospect of snows and icy driving at hand, we wanted to remind our community about safety considerations when driving in and around the school.  In the interest of improved safety and traffic flow during drop off and pick up, we wanted to emphasize:

  • Please do not leave your vehicle unattended in the parking lot driving loop. If you need to exit your vehicle, please park in an available spot.
  • Please do not park in the bus pick-up or drop off zone in front of the school along Limcombe Drive. Signage on the street indicates where the bus zone begins and ends.
  • When parking on the street in a permitted spot, please be mindful of the flexible posts and not to have your vehicle encroach on the sidewalk, which creates an obstacle for pedestrians.
  • When parking on the street in a permitted spot, please park parallel to the sidewalk, not diagonally extending out into the street.

Most of all, of course, we ask all drivers to exercise care and caution when driving in the area at all times, in our shared concern for all community members.  We have heard general concerns from community members –and pedestrians, in particular—about speeding, drivers failing to stop at stop signs and distracted driving.  We have reached out to the Community Oriented Response department of the York Regional Police in the interest of partnering for enhanced safety in the neighbourhood, including possible increased police presence and a safety campaign for drivers in the weeks ahead.  As well, we are working with the City of Markham on roadway repairs to better level the street at the front of the school, to prevent the pooling of water and development of subsequent icy patches.  The City of Markham has also shared a number of plans it has to provide for traffic calming and improved safety in the months ahead.

We hope these efforts will provide for a safer environment in our larger, shared community.  Please be sure to always drive with alertness and consideration for those who share the road.  Ultimately, we want a safe holidays season for everyone.  Should you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact the school.

A Few Lunchtime Reminders

We wanted to remind all families that the final Sub Day of the Fall/Winter cycle was last Wednesday.  (Tomorrow is not a Sub Day, so be sure to pack your child a lunch!)  This Friday remains a Pizza Day –the final Pizza Day for the Fall/Winter Session will be on Friday, January 25, 2019.  Please note, all ‘food days’ can be found on the right-hand sidebar calendar on our blog.

Please stay tuned for some new and exciting food offerings in the New Year, too!
