NOTE ABOUT PARKING and Drop Off/Pick Up: Families should not wait for their child in the round about circle in front of the school. They can be subject to parking tickets from the city of Markham and the school is not responsible for these parking fines/tickets.

It is always really congested between 8:30-8:50. Please consider when you drop students off and pick up at the school. It is really quiet from 7:45-8:15 and after 3:30

Please do not park along the driveway or in the AMICA Parking areas.
