We want all students and families to arrive at school safely each day. Please allow enough time to ensure you are able to find parking and get to school on time. Please do not park in the City Bus stop on Vine Street as you may get a ticket from our city parking enforcement. Please be reminded that the parking lot on Vine St. is designated for Prince Philip Staff Only. We kindly ask that you please use the parking lot and student drop off located on Parnall Rd. Please note that cars and buses will be using the same drop off lane. Also, please be considerate of our neighbours when parking on a side street. Thank you for being patient and help us ensure all of our students arrive safely at school.

Mornings at Prince Philip

We know that mornings can be a rush to get your children out the door. With that being said, it is important that your child is on time each morning for school. This means planning for enough time for your child to enter through the appropriate door with their class. Being on time will help your child maximize their learning and reduce long line ups for late slips at the office! If your child arrives after the bell they will need to report to the office for a slip. We ask that parents not take students directly to their classrooms, please bring your son/daughter to the office to check in.


Please be aware that we have several students with life threatening allergies at Prince Philip. To ensure we keep all of our students safe we are requesting that NO homemade snacks or treats be sent to school for special events (i.e. celebrations, birthdays). If you wish to send a treat with your child, please discuss it with your child’s teacher and choose a store bought snack with the nut free label on it. Thank you for helping keep all of our students safe.



Our Commitment to Student Achievement

"Hand in hand, we learn together at Prince Philip."

Safety Tips for Students

Prince Philip teachers have reviewed safety in the community messages with our students, and we recommend that parents and guardians also discuss these safety rules with their children:

1. Don't talk to strangers.
2. Always walk to and from school with a buddy.
3. Do not take short cuts through alleys, parks, fields, etc. even if they are well lit.
4. Let someone know where you are and where you are going.
5. If you suspect someone is following you, RUN! Go to the nearest safe place.
6. If someone makes you feel uncomfortable, go to the nearest safe place.
7. Walk confidently and be aware of your surroundings.
8. Never, ever get into a stranger's vehicle.
9. Adults will never ask a child for help. If an adult asks you for help, run to a safe place.

Should your children report a suspicious incident to you, please report these incidents to the Niagara Regional Police and then notify the school.
