Elementary and Junior High students who live a considerable distance from the school may want to purchase an Edmonton Transit bus pass. Bus passes are sold at lunch and after school in the office during the last and first week of each month and are non-transferable. The cost of a bus pass for elementary students is $30.00 and for junior high students is $55.00 per month and if you lose your bus pass, you will be required to purchase a new bus pass at the unsubsidized cost of $69.00. Students are expected to behave appropriately on the bus. Students who are reported for misbehaviour on the ETS buses may lose the privilege of buying a pass from the school or riding the bus.
Our school community is very concerned about pedestrian safety around the school. We would ask parents who drive their children to school, to pick safety over convenience and only park where appropriate. We would also request that when you are driving near the school that you drive slowly and follow the rules of the road. Posted speed limit through the school zone is 30kmh. Further information can be found at EPS and New School Speed Limit.
We're proud of our patrollers! Every year a new batch of grade 5 students are trained at the end of the school year. They shadow the current year patrollers and learn lots. Patrollers keep our roads and crosswalks safe. More information can be found at AMA's website.
Safety in DropZone
We all share concerns about student safety and traffic around Johnny Bright School. Due to the increase in traffic volume the Parent Travel Safety Committee and the school administration team have worked to identify solutions, make suggestions and provide an important “Travel Plan” to help us all make the situation in the drop off zone safe and manageable. Please refer to the Drop Zone Map.
Our ultimate goal is to ensure that students are safe traveling to and from school. Thank you for your cooperation and continued support. Watch for regular updates and information about our School Travel Plan as we work to fine tune the daily traffic movement around the school! Please ensure you are considerate and respectful to our neighbours if you use streets adjacent or close to the school.
