JCPS Important Information
Where Do I Register? (link)
A diagnostic tool to help families and staff determine where the HDSB registration process should begin.
Now that the colder weather has arrived, we encourage all families to review the HDSB Inclement Weather Reminders. A printable version of this information is also available. If your child is bused to school, please ensure you know which transportation zone you are located in.
If you are picking up your child in-person during a lightning storm, please be patient and wait back away from the doors where your child is being dismissed, just like you do in good weather. This helps educators to see you and ensure that students are safely dismissed. Students who walk or bike home from school will be kept safely in the school until the lightning stops.

Parking Lot - Do You Know?
Joshua Creek Public School currently has approximately 900 students. Of those 900 students, about 5% qualify to ride the school bus. This means that 95% of our students live within walking distance of our school! Please support our school and our environment by arranging for your child to walk to and from school.
At Joshua Creek Public School, we are continuing to provide:
regular reminders about the safe use of our parking lot
staggered entry times by offering direct entry which allows parents to drop off and go
supervision at all entry doors
staggered pick up times - supervision of students is provided until 3:30 p.m. so parents of junior and intermediate children are encouraged to wait until after 3:20 to pick up their child(ren)
reminders to students to use the appropriate walkways and crosswalk
To help support us, parents are encouraged to:
stagger their drop off and pick up times
encourage older students to walk to school
organize walking to school groups with neighbourhood parents or older students
practise safe, defensive driving - drive slowly
not leave your car unattended unless it is legally parked
walk on the crosswalk and sidewalk, not through the parking lot
ONLY turn right when you leave the parking lot
do not stop in the drive-through (inner, left-hand) lane
