Our school respectfully acknowledges that we are located on the ancestral, traditional and unceded Indigenous territory of the Algonquin Peoples, 
on whose territory we pray, learn, play and work.

About Our School

General Reminders

Throughout the school year, the pick up and drop off routine for students remains the same. Students are to be dropped off in the morning after 9:00 a.m. at the fence on the 6th Street side of the school. Pick up will occur at 3:45 on St. Bernard Street at the gate. We must keep the front entrance and parking lot of the school free of traffic congestion so that the Para Transpo buses can get in to pick up our children.

When picking up students in the afternoon, you are reminded that the parking lot of Ste. Bernadette School is not to be used. This is private property and there have been instances where staff from our neighbour school, or parents from the other school picking up their children at the child care, cannot get out of the parking lot because parents from St. Bernard School are blocking the entrance or the exit. Please respect our neighbours.

Please remember that at no time is parking permitted in the bus loading zone. This is an area that must be open for our buses. When sending children into the school yard from a car, please make sure that they do not walk between the buses. We train the children at school to walk around the front of the buses where staff and the bus drivers can see them. Please help them to do this by doing the same.
