Forms need to be filled out and returned by TODAY September 6, 2023. This includes both the field trip form and the Stillwood online waiver.

5. Parking
Safety is of utmost importance in our parking lot and the surrounding neighbourhood streets. Students and parents are encouraged to use the crosswalks on the streets and parking lot.

Gestures of Courtesy

  • If using the pick-up lane, please arrive a little later than the dismissal time to give your child time to pack up their belongings and exit their class. The pick-up lane is not for parking, so your child should be outside and ready to hop in your vehicle when you pull up.
  • Leave parking spaces closest to the school for families with the youngest students (K-2) who need to park and escort their child to and from their vehicle to ensure their safety.
  • All student drivers are to park along 122 Ave and walk in through the forest or along 204b and walk up along the sidewalks.
  • Respect our neighbours’ driveways and the street parking restrictions.

Reserved Parking
There is one marked parking spot in our parking lot that is reserved for the entire 2023/2024 school year for the family that purchased it at the 2023 Gala Dinner and Auction. Please do not park there. (If you wish this was your spot, it will be up for grabs for the next school year through the school auction!)
