SCHOOL PARKING AND STUDENT DROP-OFF/PICK-UP
In order to ensure the safety of students, staff and visitors to our school, we are asking for your cooperation with respect to parking. Parking is permitted on the front street in designated areas. Please stop a respectful distance away from the AMA School Patrols. It is difficult for them to have a sightline of the traffic when there are cars stopped next to them.
Please respect the NO parking signs and find a location to meet your child without compromising the SAFETY of ALL students at Malcolm Tweddle. There is NO PARKING in the school parking lot. These stalls are reserved for school staff and school board employees. Staff are required to pay a yearly parking fee for the use of these parking spaces.
We ask that parents/guardians DO NOT use the staff parking lot for dropping off or picking up students or as a “turn-around” area. Students & staff are often in the parking lot during various times throughout the day and unauthorized use of this area creates an unsafe environment for all. Please choose safety over convenience. As well, please use the crosswalks to assist your children with crossing safely.
The bylaw applies when the temperatures rise above zero degrees Celsius. Under the bylaw, drivers cannot idle for more than three minutes within any thirty minute period when parked in an area designated as no idling. Bylaw exemptions apply to vehicles licensed to provide public transport, such as school buses and taxis; emergency vehicles; and vehicles transporting medically fragile people.
We all deserve clean air. With your help, we’ll be able to create a healthier environment for our students and school communities.
Thank you in advance for your co-operation!
