Dear Walnut Grove School Community:
Re: New Parking Lot Gate
To help keep our school community healthy and safe, the District will be installing a new parking lot gate at the south entrance of our school driveway. This gate will be locked and unlocked daily by our staff beginning July 1, 2021. This includes all instructional days, as well as Summer, Winter, and Spring breaks.
Arrangements have been made with our community partner, the Township of Langley, to have access and usage of the new gated parking lot as needed and in accordance with bylaws. In general, the Township of Langley will be locking the gate at dusk on weekends and statutory holidays. This is a new change which may impact you and your family, residents living near the school, and community members who use the parking lot to access nearby parks and recreational spaces. To help the community adjust to this change, the District has posted signage around the parking lot alerting users of the installation of the parking lot gate which will be locked daily, in effect beginning July 1, 2021. These warning signs will be in place for nearly two months, giving the community time to adapt.
We kindly ask you to share with any members of our community who may benefit from this information. Thanks for your cooperation and support. If you have any questions, please contact the school.
