Welcome back students, teachers and support staff! From the Board of Education and everyone at SD62, here is to a  new year of fantastic learning opportunities!

Tips for Drivers

  • Every school day, unless otherwise posted, a 30-km/hr speed limit is in effect in school zones from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • When you’re dropping off your children in school zones, allow them to exit the car on the side closest to the sidewalk. Never allow a child to cross mid-block.
  • If a vehicle’s stopped in front of you or in the lane next to you, they may be yielding to a pedestrian, so be prepared to stop.
  • Watch for school buses. Vehicles approaching from both directions must stop for school buses when their lights are flashing.
  • Before getting into your vehicle, walk around your vehicle to make sure no small children are behind it. Always look for pedestrians when you’re backing up
