Parent drop off and pick up zones 

drop off zones

These safety procedures are designed to ensure students are safe and do not walk through traffic.

Zone 1 – Drop off and pick up only
Cars are not to wait in this zone. This will allow traffic to continue to flow.

Zone 2 – Drop off, pick up, waiting

Zone 3 – Waiting only

  • Cars are not allowed to drop off or pick up in Zone 3, because Zone 3 is not next to the footpath where students enter the school.
  • Parents/guardians will need to move from Zone 3 to vacant spots in Zone 1 or Zone 2 when dropping off or picking up students.
  • Students can signal or text parents when they are on the footpath at a vacant spot in Zone 1 or Zone 2 ready to be picked up at the end of the day.
