Walking to School Safely

Strathcona County is implementing many different calming measures to ensure students can walk to school safely.  Check this link to see what is being put in place in your neighbourhood.

The intersection of Lakeland Drive/Clarkdale Drive will be signalized by mid-August and activated before the opening of our school.  This will ensure a safe place for students to cross and will facilitate the movement of buses and other traffic out of the Davidson Creek subdivision safely.

A flashing beacon will be installed at the T-intersection of Summerland Drive and Lakeland Drive to help students cross safely.  As well, there currently is an overhead pedestrian amber flashing light at the intersection of Lakeland Drive and Davenport Drive.

Principal's Message

Dear Families,

We warmly welcome you to Davidson Creek Elementary (DCE)! It is a tremendous honour to be appointed as the first principal and I look forward to the many opportunities that come with opening a new school. Starting a school from the very beginning is a wonderful gift full of promise and adventure for all involved. Together we will create a vision and solid foundation where students have the best opportunity to learn in student-centred environments.

Students are the heart of our school, and each student is valued for their uniqueness. At DCE, it is our commitment to create an engaging and rich learning environment for all students.
