New School Safety Patrol

The School Safety Patrol has just finished their first week patrolling the crosswalk area at Culloden and East 29th. 

Students in Grades 6 and 7 were trained by Constable Ryan Hooper, a member of the VPD’s Traffic Division. They will be patrolling the crosswalk area at Culloden and East 29th, from 8:40-9:00 and from 3:00-3:20 every day. Please beware and please follow all driving and parking regulations in that area and around the school. New parking regulations have been set along East 29th Avenue. 

A big thank you to all the students who volunteered for this important job. We really appreciate your work and effort.

Please watch for DFS gift catalogues and an order form in your child’s school bag. The school community receives a significant percentage of the proceeds of anything purchased. These funds support a variety of school and classroom programs, activities and resources including arts curriculum, Saleema Noon Body Science presentations, and more. 

Instructions are included as part of the order form. All ordering is done online. The deadline for ordering is November 4th.
