Are You Picking Your Child up From School?

We would like to take this opportunity to remind our families about some expectations when you pick up or drop off your students at the beginning/end of the school day.  

  1. As our street is narrow and we have had many school buses transporting students to and from school, parking/stopping 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 important and traffic jams take away from this safety.   If you are dropping off or picking up your child park your vehicle on Coldwell Road or Stewart Avenue.  Arrange to meet your child at the edge of the playground,  then walk together, using the crosswalks, safely on and off school grounds.
  2. During the day - Pick up from the front doors.  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 call the front office of the school, our Administrative Assistant will call your child down to the office to release them into your care outside of the building at the front doors.  Currently the school is restricted to only student and staff access; visitors are not permitted.  We ask for your support as this ensures that we are aware of and accountable for all students leaving our building.
  3. 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.  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
  4. Regina Public Schools is promoting a "Stride Over To School" campaign.  Please click HERE for more info on this.

Thank you for your efforts in keeping our staff, students, and bus operators safe.
