Safety for All

posted Mar 2, 2016, 2:20 AM by Our Lady of Fatima School

Safety in our schools is our number one priority.

When dropping off your children in the morning or picking them up at the end of the day, never stop in the bus zone on Lockhart Drive, even if only for a few seconds.  Cars are not permitted in the bus zone.  By-law officers will ticket cars that are parked or stopped in the bus zone. Please park or stop on Byron Avenue and walk up Lockhart.  When walking your children to the gate, never walk between buses. 

It is important for all parents and students to recognize that a danger zone exists in the immediate vicinity of school buses. This area is generally defined as a three metre perimeter around the bus. At every opportunity, students must be reminded to stay clear of the danger zone. Your assistance in helping your child recognize and keep clear of this area at all times is paramount.  OCTA School Bus Safety 

When picking up your children at the office, please respect and follow the parking rules, and only park in designated areas.

Safety starts will all of us setting good examples.
