** Dear Parents, please pay attention to the following important safety information as it pertains to the new traffic regulations being implemented on Delta Ave, which are now in effect.  Left turns in and out of our Parking Lot  will no longer be permitted from 8:30 to 9:30 am & 2:30 to 3:30 pm. In short, if you are travelling south on Delta Ave from Parker St or Hastings St, you will need to select a street such as Northlawn and go right. You can follow that street to Southlawn or Brentlawn and get o to Delta Ave. from there and then make a right turn into our lot. If you are exiting our Parking Lot, you will only be able to make a right turn onto Delta Ave. This new regulation, which will also apply to Brentwood Park Elementary School & Preschool, has been initiated by the surrounding Schools, Preschools and the City of Burnaby. This is being put in place to make Delta Ave. safer for the Children of our Schools. This regulation will also be monitored and enforced by our local RCMP Officers. Please add some extra time to help you cope with this adjustment and please pass on this information to other Family members who pick up or drop off your Children.)

Wishing you God`s blessings,

Mr. Dino Alberti
