Driving to School

If you have to drive your child into school, please park on Norton Crescent and MacKenzie Blvd. then you are able to use the trail from those roads and walk your child right into the school property.

If you continue to park on Rexway, you will be ticketed by the by law officer as this is a bus loading/unloading zone only from 8:15 to 8:45.

As well, you are aware that our parking lot is small. We do not want additional cars in there in the morning from 8:30 to 8:45. Please do not park in accessible parking spots. Again you can get a fine for parking there.

If it is raining out, the students will go directly inside so the walk along the trail and back to the car is not any longer, is safer, and less costly than parking on Rexway.

Thanks for your understanding and compliance with this.

A message from our Chair and the Director of Education

We are asking for your help in the creation of our next Multi-Year Plan!

The HDSB has a multi-year strategic plan (known as our Multi-Year Plan or MYP) that guides our collective actions and decision making as an organization to ensure we are always focused on providing a high standard of education for students.

We are currently in the last year of our current MYP, and are starting the development of our next four-year plan which will take effect September 2020. This will include opportunities for face-to-face input at two large community sessions as well as online surveys designed specifically for students, staff, parents/guardians and community members. These consultations will take place during November and the data collected will be used in the development of the plan over the next three to four months.

We are asking for your help in sharing your views on our current plan and identifying areas we should focus on in the new plan.

The online surveys will be available on the Board website from Nov. 4 - Dec. 2, 2019.

A Community Roundtable Discussion will take place in the North area of Halton on:

Monday, Nov. 18, 2019 from 7 - 9 p.m. at the Milton Staff Learning Centre (215 Ontario St S, Milton)
