Transportation Information

On August 21, 2017 NSTS will post specific back to school transportation arrangements for each student enrolled at the school boards, including bus route numbers, stop locations and times. Eligibility information is also available through the portal and walking directions are available if your child lives within the walk zone of the school and is not eligible for transportation service.

Please visit www.nsts.ca and sign-in to the secure parent portal to get your child’s student transportation information. To sign-in to the portal you will need your child’s Ontario Education Number (OEN) which can be found on their report card. While signed-in, please subscribe to the delay and cancellation module for direct and timely emails regarding student transportation that impacts your child.

Changes to home, pick-up or drop-off addresses must be made through your child’s school. During the summer you may notify NSTS of address changes so we can make sure a bus stop is available for your child to start the school year, however, NSTS is not authorized to change student address information. 

With the availability of the secure parent portal, NSTS will not mail student transportation notices with the exception of Kindergarten students or new students to the system who do not have an OEN to sign-in to the portal

Please contact your school or NSTS if you have questions regarding your child’s transportation arrangements.

Fun Fair

Thank you to all who contributed to our Fun Fair in one way or another. Whether you donated a jar or your time or attended the event, your contribution was appreciated. June 1st was a beautiful day and many families took advantage of the games, the bouncers, the food and the opportunity to get Prince Philip staff wet with water balloons! All proceeds from this event will go directly back to improving the learning environment for Prince Philip students! 

 

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.
