Managing traffic safety on the campus and surrounding streets is a major concern for the Crofton House School community and our neighbours. Local streets can be crowded during peak times in the morning and afternoon and W 41st Avenue is a very busy traffic artery. Our goal is to provide safe traffic conditions for everyone and strongly encourage families to consider alternative means of transportation such as walking, cycling and public transit whenever possible.
Provident Security, with the support of our facilities team, will continue to support safe pedestrian crossing at the Blenheim Street gate, control the traffic entering and exiting the roundabout, and assist at the crosswalks on Balaclava Street and W 41st Avenue.
Below are the school’s traffic guidelines as a reminder to parents, staff, and students to keep our traffic areas safe for everyone. Cooperation in following the guidance provided by Provident Security and our facilities staff is greatly appreciated.
Drop-off and Pick-up Zones
Blenheim Street Guidelines
During peak morning and afternoon hours, only right-hand turns will be allowed into and out of our roundabout. No left-hand turns will be allowed into or out of the roundabout on school days between 7:30 to 8:30 am and 3:30 to 5:00 pm.
Please see the Return to Campus Plan for Early Childhood Education Centre and Junior School drop-off and pick-up routines.
Balaclava Street (South) Guidelines
Junior and Senior School parents may drop their daughters on the east and west sides of Balaclava Street. Students dropped off on the east side of the street must cross using the marked crosswalks.
W 41st Avenue (South) Guidelines
Junior and Senior School parents may drop their daughters off on the south side of W 41st Avenue.
W 41st Avenue (North) Guidelines - No Stopping or Parking
No parking or stopping is permitted on the north side of W 41st Avenue from Carnarvon Street to Dunbar Street, from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm
Parking Off Campus
If you are parked or stopped on side streets waiting to pick-up your daughter, please respect the property and needs of our neighbours. As roads in the area are narrow, extra caution is required to ensure traffic circulation is not hindered and access to driveways and lanes remain clear. Please do not park or stop too close to corners or stop signs.
Students Driving to School
Students who absolutely need to drive to school must register their vehicles with the Senior School office and parking spaces will be assigned as available.
