February 26 Important Notice to our families:

We have had increasing inquiries and concerns regarding the private property around Bill Crothers about parking at end of school day. It is important to us to maintain positive relationships with our community especially those directly in our vicinity as they provide a service to many.

We ask that parents and guardians do not park or wait for students on private property near the school such as the Amica Seniors building or Vitality building directly across from the school on Main street.

We recognize many students carpool and are picked up, and due to Covid students are to leave school property directly after school which is a challenge. With this in mind, some solutions right now could be to go all the way to our back parking lot, or in the parking lot across Enterprise Boulevard. Students could also walk across to Rivis Road to YMCA Boulevard where there is a YMCA, or the Unionville Go Train Station.

We remind students to always use the provided crosswalks in order to meet their rides safely.

Thank you for your kind attention to this matter.

It is always really congested between 8:30-8:50 and 3:00-3:15. Please consider this when you drop off or pick up your child.
