Bus Loop - letter to parents

School bus loop

Dear Parents,


We have had an ongoing concern with parking congestion in the school bus loop. We have noticed that there are three lanes of cars moving in the bus loop after the buses have left. Students and parents are often moving between cars to get to the sidewalk safely. This is a safety concern. 


In light of this, starting Monday, March 23rd, the school bus loop on Leamington Way will be closed to cars from 8:15 am to 8:50 am and from 2:45 pm to 3:15 pm.  The safety of our students is our top priority and we appreciate your support in this effort.


The OSTA School Zone Map <Chapman Mills 2019-2020 MAP 2.pdf> shows areas where you can park or stop to drop-off/pick-up students. Families using EDP may continue to use the bus loop before 8:15 am and after 3:15 pm. Remember, stopping and U-turns are not permitted on Leamington in front of the school. The fine for stopping is $120. For safety reasons, the staff parking lot remains closed between 8:15 am to 8:40 am and 2:45 pm to 3:15 pm.  


A "Kiss and Ride" is available on Leamington Way just south of the bus loop. Students exit on the sidewalk while the driver remains in the vehicle. A staff member is there at 8:15 am to 8:30 am each morning to ensure safety and proper use. Parents can also drop off/pick up their child on Chapman Mills Drive when heading towards Woodroffe.


We are making these changes so that our students are safe. Thank you for your support.
