You may have noticed increased police and by-law enforcement around Abraham Erb and along Laurelwood Drive. This is due to ongoing safety concerns for our students, and parking issues on Laurelwood Drive and in the Abraham Erb Parking Lot.
As a reminder, you should not use the Abraham Erb Parking Lot for pick ups or drop offs between 8:45-9:25 am or between 3:15-3:45 pm. The parking lot is closed and we ask that you use the side streets to park and walk into school.
If you are dropping off or picking up during school hours, you may park in the parking lot, however, you may not use the fire lane for stopping, dropping off or parking (the fire lane is the curb closest to the school in the parking lot in front of the school). Please use a parking space to park, turn off your ignition, and walk your student to the door of the school.
These measures will help to reduce traffic in and out of our parking lot when we are expecting both the bus and our staff to arrive and depart safely, reduce illegal parking in our fire lane, as well as improve safety for all of our students.
Please refer to this map from the City of Waterloo which clearly indicates the side streets that are available for on-street parking.
Thank you for your cooperation.
