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 direction, 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 your consideration and co-operation with this important matter.

ARE YOU TICKED?
Make Sure Your School Support Designation is English Separate (Catholic)
It’s a powerful message in support of Catholic education
On October 27, you will cast your vote for Catholic school trustee in the Municipal elections. Make your vote count, by ensuring you are registered as an English Separate school supporter.
When you designate yourself as an English Separate school supporter, you help foster a strong political voice, through your elected representative (Trustee), in ensuring your rights to a Catholic education for the young people in our province.
To verify that you are registered as an English Separate school supporter:
- Check the assessment section of your Tax Bill or Property Assessment Notice
- Check your Voter Information Card received by mail during the month of May
We can help you register or change your direction of school support. Contact the Admissions Department at 905-890-0708 ext. 24512.
