Parking Lot Safety

30 Oct

At the end of the day, our parking lot is becoming congested and unsafe. The buses and taxis that must get into assigned areas for pick up have expressed concerns of safety. In response, we are implementing the following:

  • 2:50 – 3:10  pm, the parking lot will be closed (with exception of buses and taxis) and monitored by staff
  • should you find a parking spot prior to 2:50 pm, you will not be able to exit until after 3:10 pm.

Parking is available on Brownridge and side streets around the school.

As well, in the morning, the buses are now letting students off at 8:20 am so that our kiss and ride loop is more accessible. Again, please follow the order in the kiss and ride and    do not stop your car to let out children at the west end of the loop beside the tarmac. Please follow the direction of supervising staff.



Halloween Guidelines at Brownridge PS

28 Oct


In advance of Halloween, we just want to remind our famililes that no food treats of any kind are permitted at Brownridge Public School.  Please also ensure that you carefully read the packaging of any treats your child may be bringing for snack. We are a nut free school. We greatly appreciate your support in keeping our students and staff with life threatening  allergies safe.

Students will have the opportunity to wear costumes in the afternoon of Halloween (October 31). As we adhere to the Safe Schools Policy, no masks or replicas of any weapons are allowed. Please be sensitive to the nature of your child’s costume as we have younger students beginning at age 3 in kindergarten at Brownridge.

Thank you for your cooperation in this important matter.
