Parking Lot Safety Notice
Parking Lot Safety Notice
St. Joe’s is very busy and congested in the mornings before school starts. To ensure the safety of motorists and pedestrians in our parking lot please do not drive into the sjo parking lot 2 or 3 car lengths and then stop to drop off your child. This results in a traffic congestion in the middle of the Cundles/Livingstone intersection at the lights. Parents are requested to drive and proceed all the way to the back of parking lot to drop off their children. This will help keep traffic flowing and ensure a more safe arrival to school. Parents are also reminded especially during these dark mornings that they must yield to pedestrians in sjo parking lot.
