Dear Rickson Ridge Parents and Guardians,
We continue to have major problems involving the safety of students and staff at the school due to congestion near the school and in the staff parking lot.
In the interests of student safety, the main staff parking lot and main bus lane in front of the school is closed to all car access. Only school buses, taxis and staff are permitted to use the main school front lane.
Our main reason for enforcing this is a continued concern for student safety. The school parking lot and the daycare parking lot are currently being used as a drop off for students and traffic rapidly moving through the area is causing bus and car congestion problems and putting student lives in jeopardy. We have complaints from parents about potential injury to our children.
The main bus lane and staff parking lot are closed to all non Board traffic. The Day Care parking lot is closed to all but Day Care traffic. No student drop off or pickup is permitted at the front of the school on the main bus lane. Entry to this area is reserved for busses, taxis and staff only.
Parents needing to drop off students are asked to use the drop off locations on Rickson Avenue on the west side of the street or on the side streets adjacent to the school.
We need to act to ensure the safety of all students at Rickson Ridge Public School. Our prime concern is the safety of your daughters and sons.
Thank you for understanding our situation.
