  • Transportation

    Transportation

    BUS SERVICE

    Service for Elementary Students

    Yellow bus (fixed route/regular) service is only provided to elementary students at their primary designated school. Transportation will not be provided to students living in the school's neighbourhood walk boundary or outside of the catchment area.

    Service for Junior High Students

    Edmonton Transit System (ETS) is the preferred way for junior high students to get to school. 

    Applying for yellow bus service

    The registration deadline for yellow bus service is June 1, 2020. To ensure your child receives yellow bus service on the first day of school, you must apply before the deadline. 

    All yellow bus service registrations for the 2020 school year will be done online:

    • Current students can register in SchoolZone. See SchoolZone for instructions.
    • Students who are new to the Division can register using an online form, which is  also posted on the Edmonton Public Schools website.

    If your child has been approved for yellow bus service, you’ll be notified in mid-August with the route number, stop locations, pick up and drop off times and bus company contact information. 

    Bus passes

    Students who receive bus service must buy a bus pass. Yellow bus, and subsidized ETS passes, can be purchased at your child’s school each month. 

    Ride times

    Minimizing ride times for students is our highest priority. We’ll work to make sure yellow bus service is as efficient as possible and meets the District’s ride time standards. We’ll also continue our ongoing work with the City of Edmonton to discuss how to best provide efficient ETS service for district students.

    PARKING AND TRAFFIC

    FLORENCE HALLOCK SCHOOL TRAFFIC APP

    Streets around our school are often very congested during morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up. To help keep our students safe, we need you to do your part by slowing down and following traffic safety laws.  

    30 km/h school zones

    Starting September 2, 2015 a lower speed limit in school zones came into effect in Edmonton. You must slow downto 30km/h around schools between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. on school days where signs are present. 

    Speed limits will be strictly enforced by both the Edmonton Police Service and the City of Edmonton’s Office of Traffic Safety during posted hours.

    General safety reminders

    • Remain courteous and patient
    • Drive slowly and watch for students crossing the road
    • Abide all traffic signs and laws
    • Use designated crosswalks
    • Respect school staff and volunteers assisting with drop-off and pick-up

Welcome

It is our goal to provide our very diverse group of students with exceptional opportunities to grow as individuals, and to grow together as a group. This can only be accomplished through the combined efforts of an exemplary staff, and supportive and informed parents, who, together, hold common expectations for appropriate student conduct and student learning.

We will continue to challenge students to be the best that they can be; to accept their own and others' strengths and weaknesses; to celebrate success, and to see mistakes not as failure, but as an essential part of the learning process; to be accountable for their conduct and the development of positive relationships with others; and to assume their rightful responsibilities as learners. Please see link to the left for the Student Rights and Responsibilities document.

Throughout the school year we will create opportunities for our families to participate in meetings, celebrations, after school activies and special days at school.  Parents and students will receive these communications through Schoolzone.

Florence Hallock School has been modeled around being environmentally friendly both with the structure of the building itself and the many practices that our teachers and students have put into place to ensure that we support our environment as well. With this goal in mind, please remember to check Schoolzone regularly—passwords are sent out in September for all parents to access Schoolzone for each child in the family. It is very important that you have current and valid email addresses in your child's demographic file so that you will receive notice of postings relative to your children at the school. SchoolZone gives you access to school information, report cards, attendance, as well as specific classroom information for each of your children. If you require assistance with this, please contact the school office.

Regards,

Tanis Marshall

Principal
