Getting To and From School

Posted September 13, 2019

Information to help you plan your journey to and from school:

Walking, cycling and scooting to and from school are all great ways to be active and healthy. The Routes to School Map shows the popular walking routes to École Guelph Lake PS and the location of crosswalks and crossing guards in the local neighbourhood. Use the map to plan your route to school and practice the journey with your family.

If you need to travel to school by car, consider parking or dropping-off/picking-up in a nearby street and walking the remainder of the journey (‘walk-a-block-or-two’) to help reduce traffic and congestion in front of our school. When we walk to school, even if it’s just for the last few blocks, we contribute to a happier, healthier, cleaner, and safer school neighbourhood.

There is an Adult School Crossing Guard to assist students crossing the intersection at Eastview Road/Severn Drive – see the City of Guelph Information Bulletin for details.

The Access to School Map shows you which way to go when you arrive at school, whether it is by foot, bicycle, bus, taxi or car. Please note the following important points:

  • The bus loop driveway (by Couling Crescent) is for school bus and taxi use only.
  • For information about the school bus service please visitstwdsts.ca or call Wellington-Dufferin Student Transportation Services at 519-824-4119 for assistance.
  • A kiss n’ ride program is available in the parking lot for student drop-off by car. Access is via the driveway on Watson Parkway North.
  • If you need to accompany your child into the school, or you are picking-up by car in the afternoon, please park on Severn Drive or one of the other nearby public streets where parking is permitted. We ask that vehicles do not try to enter the school grounds to park during drop off and pick up times. (If there are special circumstances please speak to Principal Marquis.)
