Thank you very much to the many parents who safely use the Kiss'n'Ride drop-off area in the morning!  We know that morning is a busy time for everyone, and we really appreciate the patience and courtesy of drivers using the school's Kiss'n'Ride area. This patience and courtesy goes a long way in maintaining a safe environment for all!

A few reminders to help promote safety:

-Kiss'n'Ride works best if drivers stay in their vehicle. If you wish to use the Kiss'n'Ride lane (the lane next to the sidewalk), we ask that you please stay in your vehicle and let your child(ren) exit the car on their own, and from the sidewalk side only.

-If you believe your child needs assistance in exiting the vehicle, then we ask that you use available parking on the street. You can then exit the vehicle with your child and safely walk with them to the school, and this can all be done without causing a delay for those who are using the Kiss'n'Ride in the manner for which it was designed.

-We also ask that you please pull up as far as possible in the Kiss'n'Ride area (ideally as far west as you can go in the lane), before letting your child(ren) out. We realize this may result in a slightly longer walk for your child(ren), but it really helps the Kiss'n'Ride to avoid being backed up.

-Please have children exit your car only when you are in the curb lane in Kiss'n'Ride. Please do not block the drive-thru lane. It is not safe for children to be exiting from vehicles in the drive-thru lane.

-Please consider dropping your child off a few minutes earlier in the morning. Even on the busiest of days in Kiss'n'Ride, there's usually very little traffic between 8:15 and 8:20 in the morning.

Thank you for your attention to these matters. We know that everyone is in a hurry, especially in the morning drop-off time, but our number one concern is always the safety of all members of our community at Metro Andrei School. Thank you for taking the time to be considerate of others by following these important safety reminders!

Metropolitan Andrei School is named in honour of Metropolitan Andrei Sheptystsky (1865-1944).

Born of an aristocratic family, Roman Alexander Sheptystsky joined the Basilian order in 1888 and changed his Christian name to Andrei. He was ordained in 1892, named Bishop Stanislav in 1898, and Metropolitan of Lvov in 1901.

Through his charity and writings, Metropolitan Andrei reinvigorated Catholicism in the western Ukraine. He was a staunch defender of the faith in Czarist Russia and in the post-revolution communist regime in the Soviet Union.

Metropolitan Andrei saw the need for strong leaders, which is why he became a dedicated supporter of the Ukrainian youth organization PLAST, whose development of leadership skills is one of its main goals. An excellent role model for youth, Metropolitan Andrei led by example. He cultivated leadership skills in all aspects of life, faith, family, community, and country. Through his actions, it is clear that leadership is not limited to one area or interest, but is interwoven in all aspects of life.

Metropolitan Andrei took great interest in Ukrainian immigrants in Canada, and sent priests to minister to the faithful. He visited Canada on a number of occasions, and supported the Canadian-Ukrainian Catholic ministry spiritually and monetarily.
