Crosswalk Safety

The safety of our students if of the utmost importance to all staff members at Coalbanks Elementary School. There have been a number of concerns in regards to the safety of our students during pick up and drop off times. To ensure the safety of all our students, the guidelines listed below must be followed.

It is vital that students and parents use the marked crosswalk only when crossing the street. Please lead by example and do not cross the street anywhere other than the crosswalk. The City of Lethbridge has planned to install crosswalk lights as a safety measure as well.

Slow Down. Please ensure that you are following school zone traffic laws.

Do not make U-turns or pull into the park walkway that is just off the main crosswalk to turn around.

Do not block the crosswalk intersection as this inhibits other driver’s view of the children crossing the street.


If you have any questions, please contact me at the school or drop in for a visit.  Thank you for your continued support.
