Changes to Manor Park Public School Grounds

Changes to Manor Park Public School Grounds
Dear Manor Park Community,

We would like to thank you for sharing your views and also attending our public meeting on 7 October 2019 to discuss potential changes to Manor Park Public School grounds. Following this meeting, OCDSB staff has been studying various options to address student safety issues related to the density of traffic before and after school.

A number of options are being considered such as:

· providing better delineation between busses and students via 
modifications to sidewalks and pathways at the front of the building;
· reviewing the potential to provide a parent drop off loop at the rear of the property (off Thornwood Rd). Multiple factors need to be reviewed for this option to determine if it is feasible from a site and City point of view;
We will be pursuing these options as alternatives to the creation of a new parking area on the site. If they prove viable and if we can have the continued cooperation of the school community and the broader community in making student safety a priority, then the parking expansion will be reconsidered entirely.

A working group will be struck early in the new year, and these options will 
be reviewed in detail. Implementation of any changes would be completed during the summer of 2020. 

An update will be shared with you once the review is completed.

Thank you,

Marnie Patterson, Proud Principal
