Dear CIC Parents,

Safety tips for students

Safety tips for students

The safety of students and staff at Columbia International College is our highest priority. We want to ensure that everyone practices proper safety techniques and avoids preventable injuries. We also want to ensure that our students know, understand, and obey local street and traffic rules. As such we want to remind students of simple practices to follow when crossing the street from Maple to Ainsliewood, or any street in Hamilton;

• Cross the street ONLY at marked crosswalks and intersections and ONLY when the ‘Walk’ signal is displayed
