Parking Lot - Do You Know?
Joshua Creek Public School currently has approximately 900 students. Of those 900 students, about 45 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 and Kiss ‘n Ride
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
