PARENT’S BULLETIN
Southern Kings Consolidated School

March, 2014

School Parking Lot

Your children’s safety is a priority concern here at SKC. We have been experiencing an increase in the number of motor vehicles entering our parking lot to drop off and pick up students. The problem is many of these vehicles are passing our school busses when they are loading and unloading the students. This is resulting in some close calls as it relates to pedestrian safety. Your child’s safety is something I am not prepared to compromise.

The Highway Safety Act is applicable to a school parking lot. Passing a school bus with its red lights flashing is an offence that could result in a $5000 fine and the loss of 8 points of a driver’s license. I have had discussions with the RCMP and they are prepared to enforce these provisions of the Act. I would prefer compliance with the Act by motorists than the previous scenario. I am asking, in the interest of your children’s safety, that if you are dropping off or picking up students before, during, or after school that your vehicle remain directly behind the designated bus parking area. Vehicles that are parked to the sides of this area hinder the busses ability to turn when exiting the parking lot, as they are often completely or partially blocked.

Visitors entering our school parking lot during recess (10:15 - 10:30) and noon break (11:30- 12:05) are also asked to comply with this request as there are usually many students playing basketball, etc. at these times.

This request would not apply to those parents who are picking up children from extra-curricular activities at the school during late afternoon or evening, as the busses have already left for the day.

By working together, it is my sincere hope that we continue to enjoy a high level of safety for all concerned. Your cooperation in this regard is expected and appreciated.
