Welcome to Irma Coulson Public School

Grade 1 Information Night
Please mark your calendar for the Grade 1 information night.  This will be taking place in our gym on January 22 at 6:30pm. We encourage anyone with a child who will be entering grade 1 in September 2015 to attend.

Kiss and Ride UPDATE
With the colder weather comes an increase in traffic through our 'Kiss & Ride'. To ensure the safety of children being dropped off and our pedestrian traffic, as well as improve the efficiency of our system, you'll see some additions to our processes effective Monday, January 5th.

Most noticeably, the Drop Off area at the front of the school will now be defined by two lanes, marked clearly by signs. The right hand lane will allow families to drop off students in Grades 2 – 8, directly at the curb, then pull forward in the same lane and exit at the end of the zone. The left hand lane will now be designated for cars exiting the K- Grade 1 Kiss & Ride loop ONLY. As we transition into using a 2-lane system, we ask families to follow the direction of the staff that will be supporting this new process.
