The children’s safety is a concern to all of us. The expectation is that drivers will respond to traffic signs and they will be cautious when approaching the school area. As parents, it is reasonable to expect a safe “drop-off” zone for the children. Hence, the question: “Where can I stop in order to off load my child(ren)?” At Our Lady of the Rosary, parents are expected to drop off their children on Glen Shields Avenue. The city of Vaughan has placed signs directing parents that the area is a non parking zone between 8:00- and 9:30 am and 3:00-4:30 pm, Mon.-Fri., from Sept. 1-June 30.
Please remember to not block any driveways and please do not park too close to the school driveways. Busses need additional space to turn safely without clipping the front or back end of a stopped/parked car. U-turns are prohibited and would create a danger in any school area. As a gentle reminder, please ensure the safety of children by having them wear seatbelts correctly, at all times.
Parents dropping off or picking up students are reminded that they are not to enter the driveway after 8:20 am and 3:00 pm as we are preparing for student arrival and dismissal.
Thanks for your time and assistance in creating an even safer school.
