Safe School Welcome Program

A front door speaker/buzzer/video monitoring system has been installed to proactively enhance the safety and security of students and staff.  Visitors may gain entrance by pressing a buzzer mounted on the wall outside the building.  The buzzer activates a two-way speaker and camera system.  The office will then be able to determine who is at the door, by observing on a video monitor. This will regulate visitor access to the school.

Thank you for helping us make St. Teresa of Avila Catholic Elementary School a safe and caring place to learn and work!

 

 

Safety First When Dropping Students Off At School

The safety of all children and staff must be considered as paramount at all times when dropping students off at school.  The number of serious incidents related to traffic circulation at the front of the school and in the Kiss and Ride area during morning arrival and afternoon dismissal has risen.  These incidents include vehicles entering the site in the wrong decision, parking and pulling out of no parking zones, parking in bus lanes, to name a few.  It is imperative that all parents and guardians who drive their children to school adhere to the traffic circulation plan and comply with the traffic and parking signage on the site.  It is equally imperative that all drivers follow the direction of staff managing the traffic circulation on the school site.
Thank you for you consideration and co-operation with this important matter.

 

 

News Release

For Immediate Release
Dufferin-Peel Catholic Board extends busing eligibility for secondary school students: Approximately 2,050 more students in Grades 9-12 now eligible for busing
MISSISSAUGA – At its meeting on June 17, the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board approved a reduction in transportation distance eligibility for secondary school students from 4.8 kms. to 3.8 kms. The decision means that approximately 2,050 more students in Grades 9-12, who live 3.8 kms or further from their neighbourhood school, will now be eligible to take the bus to and from school.
“Distances are measured along sidewalks, roads and paved pedestrian walkways from the school’s property line to the home property line using specialized geographic information system (GIS) software,” said Beth Bjarnason, superintendent of planning and operations.
The board’s budget approval on June 17 included a $750,000 transportation expenditure to enable a matching of busing eligibility with its co-terminous Peel District School Board, which had recently reduced its walking distance for secondary students following previous alignment with the Dufferin-Peel distance.
Student transportation in Peel Region is administered by STOPR (Student Transportation of Peel Region), a consortium, formed by agreement between the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board and the Peel District School Board, for the purpose of providing a common administration of transportation services for students residing in the Region of Peel.
Dufferin-Peel parents/guardians and students can check their eligibility for busing based on the new distance after July 1 by visiting the STOPR website at www.stopr.ca and clicking on the Am I Eligible for Transportation link.
After August 25, additional personalized busing information will be available for parents/guardians and students through the Parent/Student Login link on the STOPR website www.stopr.ca, including bus stop location, pick-up and drop-off times. To ensure privacy of information and security, parents/guardians or students will be required to enter the Ontario Education Number (OEN) which can be found on the student’s report card.
The Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board is one of the largest and most diverse school boards in Ontario. It serves approximately 84,000 students in 149 schools located throughout Mississauga, Brampton, Caledon and Orangeville and an additional 46,000 students in adult and continuing education programs. With over 10,000 employees, the board is also one of the largest employers in the region.
