Pedestrian Safety

Alert – Very Important

Re: IN RESPONSE TO UPGRADES ON SCHOOL CROSSWALKS ON GOVERNMENT RD

Push-Button-Walk-Signal-Sign-X-R10-4

Having both crossing systems (lights and crossing guard) has been causing some confusion and dangerous situations.  Student safety is our first priority.  After speaking to PAC and our RCMP it was determined that we need to minimize this confusion, therefore, an unmarked adult will be providing guidance to students for the rest of this week only.

Starting on Monday, September 28th a school cross guard will no longer be at the crosswalks – students will need to use extra caution while using the light system that is present at both crosswalks.

If your child walks to school please spend some time talking and showing your child correct ways to use the activated light crosswalk.  Also, the RCMP will be visiting the school during an assembly to discuss pedestrian safety.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact the school office.

Thank you for your assistance with this matter.

 

Yours truly,

Ms. Angela Uren

Principal
