All Hands On Deck for Back to School 2020 

(Bradford/Innisfil, ON) Back to school 2020 is fast approaching and South Simcoe Police Service is ready!

We will be deploying our “All Hands on Deck” response to keep students, parents and school staff safe as classes resume under developing circumstances.

Routines may vary and things will look different but we are prepared and adapting with increased police presence in school zones throughout Innisfil and Bradford. Motorists are reminded to be extra vigilant as students will be adjusting to the new normal of wearing masks and social distancing while walking to school and at bus stops. Parents are encouraged to review and practice safety rules with their children. This year, there is an anticipated increase in the number of children being dropped off at school by personal vehicles. We will be patrolling school zones to encourage and enforce pedestrian, cycling and driver safety. Reminder that failing to stop for a school bus with flashing lights and extended stop arm is a minimum $400.00 fine and six demerit points for a first offence.

We understand the challenges and concerns of our residents. Give yourself extra time. Obey signage for no stopping, no parking and speed zones. Now more than ever, it’s critical we work together to ensure a smooth, safe return to school for our children.
