Transportation to Soraya Hafez School

Elementary students living in McConachie South are considered to be within walking distance of the school and are not eligible for yellow bus service to Soraya Hafez School.

All other students for whom there is space at Soraya Hafez School, will need to make their own arrangements to get students to the school.


Anti-Idling Bylaw

As you may know, City Council passed a bylaw that prevents vehicles from idling in designated areas near schools and hospitals. The bylaw took effect on January 1, 2013.

The bylaw only applies when the temperatures rise above zero degrees Celsius. Under the bylaw, drivers cannot idle for more than three minutes within any thirty minute period when parked in an area designated as no idling. Bylaw exemptions apply to vehicles licensed to provide public transport, such as school buses and taxis; emergency vehicles; and vehicles transporting medically fragile people.

We all deserve clean air. With your help, we’ll be able to create a healthier environment for our Soraya Hafez students and school communities. Learn more about the bylaw.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation!
