Traffic Safety at the EC – Where to Drop Off and Pick up Students

Student safety must be everyone’s first priority. With student safety as our first priority and in the interests of good community relations, we ask that you follow the guidelines below. We encourage parents to find a safe and appropriate place to drop off and pick up students and park when there are events at the school.

This can be done on:

  • the east side of 32 Street NW in front of the school
  • the south side of 5 Avenue NW between 29 Street and 32 Street
  • the west side of 29 Street NW between 7 Avenue NW and 5 Avenue NW (a good spot for older children who can easily walk across the school yard).

Dropping off students in the parking lot message

Please do not pick up or drop off students in the North Parking Lot (or the South Parking Lot)

Parents are also encouraged to find streets close to the school that are not designated residential parking and walk their students to the school.  This includes parents picking up and dropping off from the Aftercare program. One suggestion is parking along 5 avenue and walking along the side of the school or parking by the Helicopter playground and walking back along 5th avenue.
