ATT: Back to School Programs and Information
Back to school can be a stressful time for parents and children alike. As we shake off the summer and get back to business, the Town of Hinton wants to share some information that can make your fall just a tad bit easier.
When are school zones speed restrictions in affect?
School zone speed restrictions are in effect from 8am to 5pm everyday that school is in. Make sure to obey posted speed limits and pay extra attention both for students walking about and school busses in the area.
How can I find out about programs and recreation options in the community?
Every year, Hinton holds an information and registration fair. Scheduled for September 6, from 6-8pm in the Hinton Centre, the fair offers all Hinton groups an opportunity to accept registration and share information on their offerings to anyone in the community.
You can also visit hinton.ca/rec to view and download our fall leisure guide, containing information on a wide array of programs and offerings alongside schedules for arena facilities.
What are my options during pool shutdown?
It may be an inconvenience for many parents and regular users, but annual pool shutdown is a necessary step in maintaining our pool facility. From September 4 to approximately October 1, our pool facility will be shutdown for maintenance, but there is an upside; through partnerships with neighbouring facilities, your pass will still work in Jasper, Edson, and Grande Cache, so you can still get your swim in!
Does the town of Hinton offer after school care?
Yes! Hinton kids for success is a licensed and accredited child care option for children aged from kindergarten to 12 years. You can find out more on our website.
For teens, the Hinton Youth centre is a good place for fun and growth. With a wide range of youth directed games and activities, not to mention a good amount of just plain chillin, youth have a safe space to find themselves in in our youth centre. Find out more on our website.
