Drop off and Pick Up

We thank those who are abiding by the street signs in the neighbourhood. Please remember you cannot stop or stand on Fenn Ave., in front of the school. There are municipal street signs that state no standing.If you are dropping your child off by car, or picking them up by car it is important that you have a meeting spot, for them, that is a short distance from the school. We appreciate your cooperation with this matter.
