Are You Picking Your Child up From School?

Learning success, growth and development as well as the safety and security of every student is of the utmost importance to all staff members at École Elsie Mironuck Community School.  Our priority is a learning environment that is safe and free from distractions and disruptions.  We take this very seriously as both teachers and students take on the important job of learning, every day at École Elsie Mironuck Community School. 

As outlined in our Welcome Back to School letter as well as in our Student and Parent Guide that were both sent home in early September, we welcome all people to our wonderful school and would like to take this opportunity to remind parents, family, community members, and guests to École Elsie Mironuck Community School of the following important procedures that foster and promote the importance of our safe learning environments:

  1. If you are picking up your child from school during the school day, we ask that you park your vehicle on either Coldwell Road or Stewart Avenue and then walk to the front sidewalk of the school.  Please then call the front office of the school so that our Administrative Assistant can call your child down to the office to release them into your care outside of the building.  Currently the school is restricted to only student and staff access therefore visitors are not permitted.  This ensures that we are aware of and accountable for all students leaving our building.
  2. If you are picking your child up from school at lunch or at the end of the day, please pre-arrange a safe spot outside of the school where your child can meet you upon dismissal.  This allows our students and staff the opportunity to complete the day with fewer interruptions with the intent to guard our instruction time on task and build your child’s independence. If you would like more information regarding safe places to pre-arrange meeting with your child, please refer to the School Zone Safety For ALL Children article that is found on our school website by clicking HERE
  3. As our street is very narrow and we have an increase in the number of school buses, parking on Wakefield Crescent is restricted to residents and School Buses only.  Our busses are large and have difficulty maneuvering through parked cars and traffic on our narrow street.  The safety of our students is paramount and traffic jams take away from this safety.   If you are dropping off or picking up your child from school we invite you to park your vehicle on Coldwell Road or Stewart Avenue and allow your child to walk.
  4. Regina Public Schools is promoting a "Stride Over To School" campaign.  Please click HERE for more info on this.

If you have any further questions, wonderings, comments, or compliments please don’t hesitate to contact school administration.  Your feedback greatly informs actions that lead to the improvement of students’ experiences at École Elsie Mironuck Community School.
