  • Traffic Flow

    Traffic Flow

    It is important for everyone to know and adhere to our traffic plan. Please read this information and follow the procedures to maintain the highest level of safety for our students. Our biggest safety concern is traffic and parking!! All parents, students, caregivers, and staff, must follow the basic parking/drop-off zones indicated by signs around the school and adhere to city Bylaws to ensure all of our children’s safety.

    Click on the link below to see a step by step guide on our traffic flow.

    https://epsb.maps.arcgis.com/apps/MapJournal/index.html?appid=77737eecc15a48acabde356c54b421f2

     

    General Information:

    Do not block the flow of traffic in and out of school property.  Consider that buses need to enter the property, and potentially emergency vehicles.

    Staff pay for their own parking stalls at the school.  Please do not park in Staff Parking (indicated in Red on the map below) even if a stall is open.  A staff member could have left for a moment and would like to return to their stall.

    Exiting the School:

    If making a left turn to head southbound on Windermere Road, stay to the left, and if making a right turn to head northbound on Windermere Road, stay to the right.

    We encourage everyone exiting the school to turn right onto Windermere Road. Turning left creates a significant amount of traffic in the school parking lot when busy.

    Tips:

    Families living in the community are strongly encouraged to walk, bike or carpool to school.

    Parents of students in Grades 4, 5, and 6 are strongly encouraged to drop their children off on Windermere Road and avoid entering the school parking lot and drive-through.

    Make a plan with your child for drop-off and pick-up. If you’re picking them up in the Hug & Go lane, and you can’t find a spot, they need to know that you’ll loop around or meet them on the sidewalk.

     

    Please refer to the "traffic map" below.

  • School Philosophy

    School Philosophy

    Constable Daniel Woodall believed in the power of hard work, reaching for one’s dreams and being an active citizen within his community.  His willingness to take on any challenge and contribute in any and every way that he could in whatever he was doing brought honour to his work as a police officer and to his family. We are very proud to be the opening staff team of Constable Daniel Woodall School and are committed to creating a school community that will embody these same values and characteristics.

    We are a very enthusiastic, positive and supportive staff who will be working collaboratively to create a Learning Community.  We will support ALL of our students in a healthy, safe and caring environment that Constable Daniel Woodall would be proud of.  Our school culture will be infused with the teachings of the “Leader in Me” program.  We will also be an EverActive school.  Our focus on leadership, health and well being will instill the lifelong practices our students will depend upon today and tomorrow to be successful global citizens.  In this positive learning environment where a culture of leadership & kindness’ will become our foundation, everyone will have the confidence to challenge themselves to be the best that they can be.
