Seeking Solutions to Traffic Chaos Around St. James Grade School @stjeschool


I've received several calls from concerned parents and residents around the St. James area. I've met with the Principal of St. James and together with the St. James Parent Council, we've brainstormed some ideas to help alleviate some of the traffic concerns around drop-off and pick-up times at St. James.

The issue is also being addressed across the region with a joint city and school board committee. I look forward to seeing the results of that committee and how we may be able to apply their recommendations to St. James.

St. James is a neighbourhood school and as such, was never designed for the amount of car pick-up and drop-off currently being experienced. We must encourage more walking to and from school to not only help alleviate congestion, but as a healthy alternative for parents and their children.

Here is a link to the article featuring this dilemma: School Boards and City Seeking Solutions to Traffic Chaos

I invite any ideas you may have to help with this issue.

Thank you.
