SAFETY AND SECURITY:  REPORTING CONCERNS

We are concerned about the construction and road work that are happening along Arbutus.  We know that this will only increase as the Broadway Subway Project continues its work on the station and bus loop that will be built at Arbutus and Broadway.   The work you are seeing now are part of the early works for the project.  We are continuing our discussions with the project and its partners to ensure that our community and neighbourhood remains safe.   

HOW YOU CAN HELP:
 

  • CROSSWALK SAFETY:  Please, be very careful at the intersections at 8th & Arbutus and 7th & Arbutus.  We have parent volunteers working as crossing guards.  Thank you to our volunteers and thank you to all of you for working with them to ensure everyone's safety.

  • ONLINE REPORTING FORM:  Should you witness anything unsafe in terms of traffic management, please, fill out this form Reporting Safety and Security Concerns Around St. Augustine School Whenever possible, take photos and submit then on this form, as well.   It is always available on the school website front page under the Broadway Subway tab.
