Dear Chicopee Hill’s Parents/Guardians, 


Beginning March 23, 2020 (after March Break), we will be making changes on our school site to support safe arrival and dismissal of students. Consultations have happened on formal levels with the City of Kitchener and the Waterloo Region District School Board in order to make changes to the school’s traffic plan for safety purposes.


To help students and families understand the changes that will be taking place, we have created videos that outline the details. We encourage you to watch these videos so you too can be prepared for the changes and to support a smooth transition to the new entry and dismissal procedures.
