Free Dental Screening Coming to Your School

A Public Health registered dental hygienist is scheduled to visit your school Nov. 26 &27 to provide dental screening to students in grades 2, 4 and 7 as required under the Health Protection and Promotion Act.

During this time the registered dental hygienist will perform a quick visual inspection of each child’s teeth to determine his/her dental needs.  Parents will be contacted if their child requires immediate dental care.  The Healthy Smiles Ontario program may financially assist children who do not have access to required dental care. 

Please contact the Public Health dental program if:

  • You wish to exclude your child from dental screening
  • Your child is not in one of the targeted grades and you would like them to participate

Call the Dental Health Line at 905-688-8248 or 1-888-505-6074 ext. 7399 or email dental@niagararegion.ca.

News

Cross Guarding Info. Sept. 2019      

During the Spring of 2019, City Staff conducted reviews for many of the City’s school crossing locations in order to determine whether or not they are still viable sites and servicing the community to their fullest potential.

As a result of these reviews, the following site consistently had a very low number of students crossing and have been identified as no longer meeting guidelines for a school crossing guard. In June 2019, Council supported Staff’s recommendation to close the following school crossing guard locations:

  1. St. Paul Avenue @ Church’s Lane,

In the future, if pedestrian demands and patterns change, the City will revisit these locations again for the placement of a School Crossing Guard.

 

Parking Lot Safety                                                   

In an effort to ensure good communication and to ensure that the safety of our students is maintained, we feel the need to address the ongoing traffic congestion on McMicking St. and Piva Ave. Since prior to our Winter Break, we have been in communication with DSBN Facilities staff, Niagara Falls Public Works and Traffic Enforcement staff, NSTS Transportation, as well parents and residents discussing traffic issues on McMicking St. during our Entry and Dismissal times. 

In December, we had a meeting with the City of Niagara Falls and our DSBN Facilities Dept. to further address the traffic and safety concerns. We mostly observed behaviours from drivers who were not obeying the parking/stopping restrictions near our school exit on McMicking St.

Since 2014-2015, prior to parking updates of our "Kiss & Ride" (2015) and our new expanded parking lot (2016), we had asked parents and guardians to drop off/pick up students at the exit of our school on McMicking St. Now that these improvements have been made and traffic flow is going well, we ask parents/guardians to access the school parking lot and "Kiss & ride" lane when dropping off/picking up students OR adhere to the no stopping/parking restrictions set out by the City of Niagara Falls.

In order to ensure that all of our families are aware of what is permitted and what is in violation of the City's parking/stopping regulations, we have included below information that clearly states what is permitted and what is a parking violation according to the City of Niagara Falls. In addition, we have included a map of our school community, particularly surrounding McMicking St./Dorchester Rd. and Piva Ave. This map clearly illustrates areas in which all families should avoid parking and those in which they are permitted to stop. Adherence to these expectations will ensure the necessary flow of traffic and buses, as well as the safety of all of our students. The City of Niagara Falls Enforcement Office will be closely monitoring and patrolling periodically to issue tickets for any violations.

With continued hope that we have full cooperation and that our families will continue to help and ensure the safety of our students, we respectfully request that you take the time to read the information outlined below and share it with others who may be picking up your children.  If you would like further information or have questions, please do not hesitate to contact the administration of the school.

Note About Bussing

As a policy of the Niagara Student Transportation Services (NSTS), under no circumstances will any student be allowed to ride a bus other than his/her regular bus.  We apologize for any inconvenience that this might pose but for liability and safety reasons, the transfer of buses is strictly prohibited.
