Welcome to Lockview Public School!
We are pleased to provide an outstanding education at Lockview Public School for our students. Innovative programs that meet the needs of all our students are taught by our dedicated and professional staff who care about your child. Our school provides extra-curricular opportunities that encourage the development of excellence, integrity and respect.
Our Board is focused on literacy and numeracy achievement and creating an environment where we are working together on our goal of success for every student. We also value the community partnerships and parent involvement which are so crucial to a successful education for our students.
We welcome your input and questions.
Mr. B. Blake
Dear Lockview Parents/Guardians,
Our school prides itself on being a welcoming place, even for our furry friends. However, we also have a responsibility to ensure the safety and wellbeing of each student.
Not all students are comfortable around animals, no matter how friendly they may be. There are a number of students who have expressed some fear and anxiety about unleashed dogs being brought to Lockview during drop-off and pick-up times.
In order to support these students, and remain compliant with City of St. Catharines by-laws, we are asking parents keep dogs leashed at all times when picking up and dropping off their children.
We appreciate your support in keeping Lockview a safe and comfortable place for all students.

Our Fundscrip account is still active and we invite parents to continue purchasing their gift cards through this program. When you purchase gift cards through our Fundscrip program the school receives 2-10% of the purchase back. There are many participating retailers including clothing, grocery and gas. These are great for gifts but also for your
personal shopping and an easy way to support Lockview students.

PARKING LOT REMINDERS
Please be courteous !
ACCESSIBLE PARKING SPACES are for permit holders ONLY!.
Our south parking lot is our primary parking lot for visitors and parents picking up and dropping off students.
Please keep in mind that there is a KISS AND RIDE feature which will allow a quick and safe drop off zone for our students. The KISS AND RIDE lane is the four yellow cross-hatched spots closest to the school. These four spots are intended for parents to be able to pull up and safely drop their child at the curb without parking. These spots are not designated parking spots.
Please do not congest our parking lot by waiting with your child until the bell. There is supervision in place for your children.
To reduce parking lot congestion you may consider meeting your child on a side street such as Goldsmith or Rochelle and always ensure that you are parked in a designated parking spot to allow for a safe flow of traffic within our parking lot.
Staff will continue to supervise the south parking lot during entry and dismissal times.
Please be punctual for pick-up. Dismissal is at 2:55pm.
Thank you for your continued cooperation in keeping Lockview students SAFE!
SAFETY CONCERN NOTED:
On behalf of Mayor Sendzik, I’d like to pass along some safety concerns that have been communicated to our office regarding parents parking along Bunting Road during school drop off and pick up times. At times when parents have parked along Bunting, residents backing out of their driveway have limited visibility of other vehicles and children due to cars that are parked illegally close to fire hydrants. By law staff have been called on occasion by neighbours when this happens. Unfortunately, if a by law officer witnesses this infraction, it is his responsibility to issue a violation that has a fine of $24.00.
