Active forms of travel (ie. walking, biking) and the use of private transportation by parents and families are strongly encouraged.

Walking Path🚶Parents & Caregivers who choose to walk their child to school are respectfully asked to use the designated walking lane – follow between the pylons and the tree line from Horden street to the sidewalk in front of the school.

Using the garage side or walking across the grass puts children directly into traffic and is strongly discouraged 🫤
🚗 Carpooling with family and neighbours is encouraged! Please be sure to call the office to let us know if someone else will be picking up your child from school. We are going to do our best to group the students travelling together to help keep our dismissal moving safely and efficiently.

Parent Loop: Ministik School Drop-off and Pick-up Procedure:

🚗🚙Small Loop Group: to help ease the congestion of traffic, we have initiated a smaller group of selected families – students will prepare to leave with Mr. V  – this group will cross at the designated cross walk location with the Stop sign.

*All student arrivals will continue with the large, outside loop***the Parent Loop is for vehicles ONLY – those walking will continue to use the designated walking lane**
We thank all of our school community for your cooperation as we take steps to improve our safety and effeciency during student dismissal times💚

—Parents & Caregivers will use the “parent loop” only for arrival and dismissal times

—- Our Parent Loop is ONE WAY ONLY!

——parents pull to the right (school side) and remain in their vehicles while children are dropped off or picked up

—– Please be aware of children, adults and other vehicles in the area, drive carefully, and read the signs!—–

The Parent Loop is supervised for entry and dismissal. Parents are responsible for the supervision of their children for drop-offs or pick-ups during instructional times. Please continue to use the parent loop in those circumstances.

*Kindness, Honesty, Sharing and Strength are Cree values we strive for each day – we very much appreciate your cooperation and kindness as we work each day to keep our children safe. If you are unhappy or unfamiliar with the drop-off and pick-up process, please do NOT take it out our education staff. You may direct your concerns to the school principal or contact the school board office. Meegwetch.
