JAW-DROPPING PICK-UP & DROP-OFF CHANGES!
Yes, it’s true. There are changes to the drop-off and pick-up routine at the elementary campus. Are they good changes? Will they make all traffic woes disappear? Most likely not, but since student safety is paramount, here’s the down-low:
- Due to construction on Christina Place, we are asking that all ACES parents avoid using Christina place for drop-off or pick-up.
- Keep your eyes open for Safetysaurus Sam, who will help us learn about safety with our crosswalks, sidewalks, and drop-off/pick-up zones.
- NEW! A yellow NO STOPPING area is now at the entrance to the elementary campus. This allows the buses to make the turn without having to wait on Old Clayburn, which will make traffic flow more smoothly. Please respect this zone, whether you approach the school from the north or the south.
Other than those changes, we simply expect courteous and law-abiding behaviour from all drivers. Remember when you park off campus, you still represent our school with your driving/parking decisions. Thank you!
REMINDER: Several of our community members in the preschool, elementary, and middle school programs have a serious nut allergy so for everyone’s safety, ALL nut products must be kept at home. Please remember this as you plan your lunches and school snacks.
Welcome New Staff: Everly Brown, Denielle Boudreau, Corinna Fair, Amanda Martens.
SHUTTLE BUS SIGN UP
As you may or may not be aware, as a school we offer our regular school busses to be used as a “shuttle bus” between our campuses. This service is free, however your child MUST be signed up to use this service. Each family will need to sign up each child, as your child will be assigned a seat on a specific bus to use throughout the year. Please follow this link to sign up.
