School Parking Lot

The school parking lot is designed for staff parking only and cannot accommodate parents drop off and pick up of their children. City of Ottawa By-Law enforcement has been monitoring our parking lot on most school days. Some parents who have pulled into the designated Handicap Parking spots to pick up or drop off students have received stiff fines.

Parents who drive their children to and from school are kindly asked to avoid the school parking lot and use the 'Kiss n Ride' lane in the mornings and park appropriately on the city streets at dismissal time.

The 'Kiss n' Ride' lane closes at 9:10
