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.
