Our students are Coming back!


2023-09-01 12:05 PDT

September 5th will mark the first day of school for tens of thousands of elementary and high school students in Central Okanagan. Children and teens will once again be walking and bussing to and from school, and drivers need to be extra vigilant. The speed limit in school zones is 30kms/hr, and it is in effect from 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. each school day (unless posted otherwise). The same speed restriction applies in posted playground zones from dawn until dusk every day.

 Important Tips for Drivers:

Students and parents walking to school should always use designated crosswalks and make eye contact with drivers before crossing the street. Remove headphones and earbuds to remain aware of your surroundings on the road.

 Important Tips for Parents and Students:

Drivers can expect to see members of Kelowna Municipal Traffic Services and BC Highway Patrol out in force next week to set the tone for this year’s school season.
