Volunteers very much needed for School Streets!

Please consider taking ONE shift (45-min only) either morning or afternoon.

This is a friendly reminder that beginning Monday, May 9, 2022, the school will be re-launching the School Streets program for a four-week period to help improve safety and encourage active travel to and from our school. A School Street is a car-free block adjacent to a school open to walking, biking and rolling during school pick-up and drop-off times.

The School Streets program information is as follows:

Monday, May 9, 2022, through to Friday, June 3, 2022, on all school days.

Franklin Street between Penticton Street and Slocan Street (see School Street diagram attached)

8:40 – 9:10am & 2:50 – 3:20pm

Volunteers are very much needed!

Parent volunteers are key to making this program a success. Volunteer shifts are 45 minutes long and involve setting up, monitoring and taking down the School Street barriers to ensure safety on the street. Shifts are available in the morning and afternoon every school day.  Just one shift will make a world a difference if everyone pitches in!  Training materials will be sent to all volunteers.

This year, we’re including a small thank you for those volunteers in the form of a coffee and snack from the Laughing Bean Coffee Co. The sign-up form can be accessed by clicking here.
