Parking, Pick-up, Drop-off, Traffic

At P.K. Yonge there are 1150 students in more than 870 families who are dropped off and picked up from school every day. Traffic procedures have been established to ensure your child’s (and all children’s) safety and well-being and to address parental concerns brought to the attention of the school administration.

With your cooperation we can keep ALL children out of harm’s way by not having them picked up or dropped off in parking lots; not entering parking lots where vehicles are moving, backing up or turning around; and not crossing roadways.
