We are making great progress with our construction project, and are about to begin exterior / landscape work. As a result, the MAIN ENTRANCE will be CLOSED as of 10 am on Friday, May 3, for approximately four weeks. A follow up email will be sent when the work shifts to the EXIT. 

School buses will be routed through the lower parking lot, as they were in the fall. Buses will drop off and pick up students on the East Side of the school at the end of the day as usual. 

Parents/guardians are asked to continue to use the lower parking lot for drop off / pick up.

Please DO NOT access the campus via the EXIT during school hours (7:30 am - 3:30 pm) as this poses a danger to our students and impedes the flow of both construction and bus traffic.  

As a school team, we are very appreciative of everyone's patience and understanding as we complete these improvements to our school learning spaces and campus.

Campus Update - Spring & Safety
As we start to experience more spring-like weather, the school is asking all drivers to increase awareness regarding students, staff, and workers who are walking on campus. The entrance and exit are uneven gravel, and care is required when accessing the campus. Please keep speeds reduced at all times and watch for students who may not be listening for or expecting vehicle traffic. Please note that Merivale's driveway is ONE way traffic. Please do not block the exit or use the exit for drop off/pick up.
