Student Pick-up & Drop-off
The morning and afternoon pick-up and drop-off of students is becoming problematic for our neighbours.  Please DO NOT use Strangcrest Place (the cul-de-sac across the road from the school) or the bus zone for dropping off or picking up students.  Both of these areas create safety concerns for pedestrians and traffic.  We encourage students to walk a short distance down the road and enjoy a little fresh air.
