Principal’s Message – May 27th
Dear Queen Elizabeth School Community,
June is just around the corner. Please see the following important information, and upcoming dates and events to close out the 2021-22 school year!
Walk and Roll to School – May 30th – June 3rd
It is Walk and Roll to school next week and we are encouraging our entire community to leave the car and Walk or Roll to school. This week we have been continuing our message that even families that need to drive to school, have nearby Park and Walk options. We are trying to avoid the convenience parking that happens at the front of the school to open up our streets, keep sight lines open for crossing the street and traffic flowing safely. There is plenty of street parking on Salter West of Howes and East of Carter that allow for easy Parking and Walking, leaving our round-a-bout area for those dropping off without parking, and those that truly need to park close to the school as they have mobility issues.
Please make the effort next week to arrive earlier, park away from the school and walk. You will notice a significant difference in the congestion at the front of the school and we will all benefit from the added safety for our kids. Your support, effort and cooperation are truly appreciated.
We will celebrate our achievement on the morning of Wednesday, June 1st where families will be able to report their method of getting to school at drop of zone receiving stations and enter a draw for cool prizes!
