PARKING AND TRAFFIC

Click to see the 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 down to 30km/h around schools between 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. 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
  • Park further away from the school and walk the rest of the way
  • Use Edmonton Transit or other ways to get to school (walk, ride a bike or roll!)

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

Current School Year (2022-2023)

Whether your child is new to yellow bus service or a current rider, you need to apply for yellow bus service each school year.  The deadline to apply for yellow bus service is June 1, 2022 to make sure your child receives service on the first day of school. Applications can be submitted throughout the school year.

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.  If you wish to purchase an ETS bus, please contact the school so we can put the fee on your child's SchoolZone.

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.
