Kiss N Ride

As part of our commitment to keeping students safe, we are asking all parents using our Kiss N Ride to please review and follow the guidelines below.

  1. Enter our Kiss N Ride via Cresthaven Drive and exit onto Waterbridge Drive.
  2. Follow the line of traffic and pull your vehicle as far forward in the lane as you can before loading/unloading.
  3. Single lane only until after the crosswalk.
  4. Do not block traffic.
  5. Stay in your vehicle; if you need to go into the school, please park in our parking lot.
  6. Only load/unload where there is a sidewalk (after the Kiss N Ride sign, not before).
  7. Buckle your children before driving away.
  8. Expect and be prepared to wait up to a ten minutes.

Please note children under the age of 8, and who are less than 80 pounds or 145 cm (4’9”) are required by law to be in a booster seat.

As a member of the community, we are working closely with City of Ottawa By-Law Services and the Ottawa Police Service to share information and pass along any concerns or safety risks to our students.

Thank you for your continued support in making our school and surrounding community as safe as it can possibly be.
