Effective immediately, the St. Joseph parking lot will be blocked off to all traffic with the exception of staff. While this has always been the posted expectation on school property it has become necessary to enforce this measure through the use of staff supervision and pylons during the day. The recent influx of unnecessary traffic in our parking lot during student drop off and pick up times is creating an unsafe environment for our youngest students. Student safety has always been our number one priority at St. Joseph. Please abide by the requests of staff and refrain from entering the parking lot at any time throughout the day. All parking spots are reserved for staff members only. Should you require the use of an accessible parking spot you are welcome to call the school in advance and we will provide you access to the parking lot.
It is also important that all staff, visitors, and families abide by posted bylaw signs within the neighbourhood when parking on streets. You may be ticketed if you park in no parking zones which are clearly posted. This includes the bus loading zone directly in front of the school. Please be a good neighbour and refrain from blocking and/ or parking in driveways that are not your own.
