Safe @ St. Roch - On-line Reporting Tool

Dear Students,
Please report any negative incidents that affect your well-being and/or the well-being of your school community by clicking on the link above.  The incident may be one that either you have witnessed or experienced yourself.  If you have any questions, please be sure to talk to an adult you trust and to contact Mr. Farrugia, Mrs. Hastings or Mr. Freitas. 

 

Safety First when dropping students off at school

The safety of all children and staff must be considered as paramount at all times when dropping students off at school.

The number of serious incidents related to traffic circulation at the front of the school and in the Kiss and Ride area during morning arrival and afternoon dismissal has risen. These incidents include vehicles entering the site in the wrong direction, parking and pulling out of no parking zones, parking in bus lanes, to name a few.

It is imperative that all parents and guardians who drive their children to school adhere to the traffic circulation plan and comply with the traffic and parking signage on the site. It is equally imperative that all drivers follow the direction of staff managing the traffic circulation on the school site.

Thank you for your consideration and co-operation with this important matter.
