  • Transportation



    Streets around our school are often very congested during morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up. To help keep our students safe, we need you to do your part by slowing down and following traffic safety laws. 

    30 km/h school zones

    Starting September 2, 2014, a lower speed limit in school zones came into effect in Edmonton. You must slow down to 30km/h around schools between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. on school days where signs are present. 

    Speed limits will be strictly enforced by both the Edmonton Police Service and the City of Edmonton’s Office of Traffic Safety during posted hours.

    General safety reminders

    • Remain courteous and patient
    • Drive slowly and watch for students crossing the road
    • Abide all traffic signs and laws
    • Use designated crosswalks
    • Respect school staff and volunteers assisting with drop-off and pick-up
    • Park further away from the school and walk the rest of the way
    • Use Edmonton Transit or other ways to get to school (walk, ride a bike or roll!)

    For information about getting to school, visit epsb.ca/schools/gettoschool.


    As always, yellow bus service only supports elementary students attending their primary designated school.  This means, as of September 2014, grandfathered students who choose to continue at their current school, but do not live in the primary attendance area will not be eligible for yellow bus service. This is unchanged from how we provide bus service to students across the District.

    Service for Elementary Students

    • Regular program service
    As always, yellow bus service is only provided to elementary students at their primary designated school.

    • Alternative program service
    Yellow bus service may also be available for elementary students who choose to attend a school offering an alternative program. Contact a school offering the program for information about eligibility.

    Service for Junior High Students

    Edmonton Transit System (ETS) is the preferred way for junior high students to get to school.

    Ride times

    Minimizing ride times for students is our highest priority. We’ll work to make sure yellow bus service is as efficient as possible and meets the District’s ride time standards. We’ll also continue our ongoing work with the City of Edmonton to discuss how to best provide efficient ETS service for district students.

    Bus passes

    Students who receive bus service must buy a bus pass. Yellow bus, and subsidized ETS passes, can be purchased at your child’s school each month. 

    Applying for yellow bus service

    Whether your child is new to yellow bus service or a current rider, you need to apply for yellow bus service each school year.  The deadline to apply for yellow bus service is June 1, 2023 to make sure your child receives service on the first day of school. Applications can be submitted throughout the school year. To learn about busing, see Get to School. Please contact the school to see if transportation is available to your address.

    If your child has been approved for yellow bus service, you’ll be notified in mid-August with the route number, stop locations, pick up and drop off times and bus company contact information.

Principal's Message

Welcome!  Tatawaw! 

I am honored to have you as part of our Elizabeth Finch family.  Students, parents and caregivers, family, staff and community members are all important and valued participants in our world of learning.  You all matter a great deal to our Elizabeth Finch family.  Welcome to a year of opportunity, growth, greatness, success and of course, learning! 

Learning is a priority at Elizabeth Finch School and learning will take place in many ways.  Literacy and numeracy skills are vital and will be part of learning in every subject.  The characteristics of kindness, caring, respect, inclusiveness and responsibility are only a few of those attributes that will also be a part of the learning in every class and every subject.  Elizabeth Finch is a safe place where students are encouraged and supported in their drive to reach their greatest potential.  Every adult is responsible for every child in the building and we will work as a team to do what is best for all of the children in our care.   

What can you do as a student to make your school year the best ever?  Be Kind!  Care!  Look after each other every day!  And most of all, come to school each and every day prepared to learn.  There are so many things in our big world to inquire about and engage in.  Be passionate!  Ask Questions!  Research!  Collaborate!  Take risks and challenge yourself!  Push yourself to achieve those learning goals.  This is your time to be great and be someone who makes a difference in our world.

For our parents and caregivers, I am always open to great conversation and engaging questions.  Please feel free to contact me when the need arises.  You are your child's advocate.  You are important and your input matters.  Your children are the greatest asset in this world and their success depends on all of our support. 

The Very Proud Principal of Elizabeth Finch School

Ms. Kelly Davis
