Important News about Drop off and Pick Up for 2018-19:

We will do a trial of the bus re-routing through the parking lot on Wednesday Dec. 19 and Thursday Dec. 20th.

Please see below for important information about our new drop off/pick up process:

  • Our 2 buses will enter the parking lot via Lewis St., drop our students off and then exit via Gilmour
  • Morning Drop off: The parking lot will be closed from 8:00 until buses leave.
  • Afternoon Pick-Up: The parking lot will be closed from 14:45 until buses leave.
  • For the safety of our students NO cars are permitted to enter or exit the parking lot when buses are present in the lot.
  • You can still use the parking lot to drop off students before 8:00, but you will have to wait with your child/ren in the yard until the buses depart before leaving.  
  • You can still use the parking lot to pick up students, but you will have to arrive before the buses and wait until the buses depart before leaving OR arrive after the buses leave
  • You can also drop students off at the Jack Purcell throughway door or on Gilmour St.
  • ESPS staff, other OCDSB employees, volunteers, student teachers, contractors, etc… need to access the building in a timely fashion. Please keep this in mind during pick-up and drop off.
  • You may experience delays during drop off/pick up.  Please take this into consideration for your personal schedule.
  • Please drive extra cautiously (i.e., check all mirrors, turn vehicles off when parking, drive slowly, use indicators, etc….) in order to keep everyone safe

As always, please remember that morning yard supervision starts at 8:00, therefore students cannot be dropped off and left alone before that (unless they are in EDP).

Thank you for your help and co-operation with this change everyone.
