After School Pickups
When picking up students after school, a number of parents have been waiting on Strangcrest Road, right across the street from the school.  Strangcrest is a very small cul-de-sac, and having so many parked cars have become a problem, blocking our neighbours' driveways.  Please respect our neighbours on this road and plan for pickups in a different location, a short walk away.
