The APA Safety Committee works to ensure the physical safety of the Allenby community during arrival and departure each school day. Focus is placed on encouraging walking versus driving, ensuring that traffic rules around the school are adhered to and liaising about traffic issues and concerns with city councillors, Toronto Police Services and Toronto’s Transportation Services.
Directors – Kate McNeill-Keller and Lesley Cogan
The Allenby Drop Zone
For students in grades 1 to 6, we encourage those parents who need to drive to use our Drop Zone. We have two different locations: Castlefield Ave. (for those travelling westbound) and St. Clements Ave. (for those travelling eastbound). The Drop Zone operates from 9:00 a.m. to 9:15 a.m. Please avoid stopping along the school boundaries on St. Clements and Castlefield ANYTIME during the school day (as indicated on the posted signage).
The Allenby Drop Zone is staffed by parents volunteers and classes are asked to fill the volunteer schedule on a rotating weekly schedule. We ask that everyone show respect and courtesy to our volunteers and ask for all parents to lend a hand when they can. Want to help out? Contact Julie Snyder for more information.
