SEPT. 30th ORANGE SHIRT DAY
Lockview and the DSBN will join with others across Canada in celebrating Orange Shirt Day – Every Child Matters on September 30, 2016 to recognize the harm done to generations of children by Indian Residential Schools and as an affirmation of our commitment to ensure that every child matters. This initiative calls for everyone to wear an orange shirt to honour the experience of survivors. It is an excellent opportunity to continue the discussion on residential schools in the spirit of reconciliation and hope for generations of children to come.
Why Orange Shirts and September 30th?
An account by Residential School survivor, Phyllis Webstad, about her new orange shirt being taken away on her first day of school led to an initial residential school commemoration event held at St. Joseph Mission in Williams Lake, BC, Canada. The date was chosen for the time of year in which children were taken from their homes to residential schools and because it provides an opportunity to set the stage for anti-racism and anti-bullying policies for the coming school year. Phyllis’s story is the nucleus for what has become a national recognition event.

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.
