SAFE ARRIVAL #464-5266

A friendly reminder to parents and guardians of George Bissett that the parking lot should not be used after 8:00 a.m. when dropping off students to Excel or waiting for the 8:10 bell.  Parents and Guardians wishing to drop off their children can still do so from Arklow and enter the school ground from either the path or the entry in the fence. We kindly remind all students, as well as parents, to use the crosswalk at all times.  Thank you for your attention in this safety matter.


School closures will be announced on the radio by 6:30 am unless, of course, school is closed through the school day. If school is closed through the day, the announcement will be on the radio by 11:00 a.m. The closures will be announced by feeder school: we are a “feeder school” for Cole Harbour High. Listen carefully to the announcements.
Have a wonderful and safe summer!
