CITY OF VANCOUVER PARKING ENFORCEMENT
Please find the following information from the City of Vancouver’s website regarding parking. They will monitor traffic in the community to ensure that bylaws are being adhered to. This ensures the safety of our students, your children.
In addition to the parking bylaws, we would like to remind you that the staff parking lot is not for drop off or pick up of students and is not a safe pedestrian walkway.
