  • New Parking Policy

    PCSS has been having issues with vehicles parked in signed "No Parking" zones, designated "Fire Lanes", on sidewalks and even green spaces around the school. In adition, dangerous driving and stunting on school property has been an issue at PCSS for many years.

    PCSS will be implementing a TOW-A-WAY rule for the 2017-2018 school year.

    1. Vehicles parked in a "No Parking" zone or a designated Fire Lane may be TOWED at the owner's expense (see the map below).

    2. If you drive your child(ren) to the schooland/or pick them up, parking in a NO PARKING ZONE may result in you being towed. There is a designated "Drop Off" zone for this purpose.

    3. Students parked in a NO PARKING ZONE, in the designated FIRE LANE, in GREEN SPACE, or on SIDEWALKS may have their vehicles towed at the owner's expense.

    4. Students found to be in violation of the Yukon Motor Vehicle Act with respect to Dangerous Driving, Stunting, or not obeying parking signs will be prohibited from bringing a vehicle to school. In the event that the student does bring a vehicle to school it may be towed at the owner's expense.
