Dear Junior School Parents,

Thank you for your ongoing patience over the past few days as we work to improve the safety of our drop-off and pick-up procedures at the Junior School.

As you know, the roundabout area that we use for drop-off and pick-up is a tight space shared by both cars and people. We are constantly reviewing our practices and will continue to make improvements that increase safety for our students.

We already have a designated area along the fence that provides a walking path connecting the school and the playground that is utilized by students, teachers and parents when the gates are open to cars at pick up and drop off. On Monday afternoon you will notice new jersey barriers installed to better delineate the walking path and will act as a safety feature for our students and other pedestrians making their way between the school building and the playground.

It is our collective responsibility to ensure the safety of all our children; and we appreciate your effort to follow the direction of all staff wearing vests when you enter and leave the drop-off / pick-up circle.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Val Turner
Junior School Principal
