JUNIOR SCHOOL PICK UP

AND DROP OFF ZONES

Families can use one of the four drive-through drop-off and pickup zones around the Elphin Campus. Our Traffic Liaison Officer is there to help. These zones are in place to facilitate an efficient flow of vehicles as well as to support road safety for all students and other pedestrians during the busy 10-15 minute periods at the beginning and end of each school day.
