Student Parking Concerns

March 5, 2018

We are addressing some student parking concerns we have. First, the student parking lot can be congested at times, especially when we have a heavy snowfall and parking is limited. To address this, we have allowed some students to park along the soccer field as an overflow section. Since we started this, we have experienced a significant number of issues. Some students continue to park in the area of the soccer field clearly marked with No Parking Signs and some students are driving the wrong way in front our school. One reason we ask students not to park next to the end of the soccer field is so they will not interfere with the flow of traffic and any buses that may be called throughout the day. Students are parking along the fence even though there is plenty of parking available in the student parking lot. What we thought would be a solution to help students so they could bring their vehicles onto school property has actually become a nuisance. Please discuss with your child that parking their vehicles on school property is a privilege and not a right. Transportation is provided for all students attending our school.


Today, we are installing concrete barriers so that students can clearly see the limits of the overflow parking area. We are also installing signage to the entrance of the student parking lot so there is no confusion as to where students are expected to park. Any students who continue to defy our parking expectations will not be permitted to bring their vehicles onto school property or may be subject to other forms of school discipline including but not limited to suspensions.


Thank you for your support in this matter.

REMINDER: VIDEO SURVEILLANCE

Pursuant to https://www.nlesd.ca/includes/files/policies/doc/1456152390765.pdf, all students and parents are reminded that our school has video surveillance cameras throughout our school.
