Dear Parents,

I hope that the beginning of the school year has been a smooth one for you as we welcomed all our students back to Holy Family. Over the last week, we have been working through many new things here at Holy Family, and I am writing to you to inform you of a change for our Grade 1 students and Mrs. Gentile’s Grade 2 class. Many parents have decided to drop off and pick up their children this year instead of sending them on the bus. This has created a significant increase in the number of cars on Hunter Street at the end of the day. In order to help alleviate this, the Grade 1s in Mrs. Shouftas’ and Mrs. Sike’s classes, and Mrs. Gentile’s Grade 2s, will be exiting out of the front of the school at the Huron Street Entrance (the old front of the school). We ask that parents picking these students up go to this area to meet them. This area has parking on Milton Street for these parents, as well as a crossing guard that can be used to get across Huron Street. We are hoping that this will help redistribute some of the traffic and allow for a safer end of day for all. If there are siblings in other grades, they can use the sidewalk to walk around to this side of the school to meet their parents/siblings. There will be teachers out there dismissing them and helping to organize the students as they utilize this new exit at the end of the day. This change will take place as of Monday, September 21st, 2020. Thanks for your understanding and cooperation in implementing this change. As always, if you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact the school.
