School Closures/Traffic & Campus Security
A school closure due to weather is a very rare occurrence, nevertheless it can happen. Before school opens, a closure message will be recorded on the UMS answering machine @ (905) 474-9888. In addition, radio stations CHFI 98.1 FM and 680 AM will broadcast school closure information. Snowball throwing is not permitted at UMS. The children are aware of this important safety rule.
Vehicles using our driveway and parking areas must proceed cautiously and at a very slow rate of speed. There can be no exceptions to this rule. We have witnessed some parents driving on school roadways at hazardous speeds and vehicle accidents have also occurred. This practice endangers children and can not be permitted. The campus security remains our priority.
