Bus Cancellations
Please be advised that with cold winter weather, there exists the possibility of school buses being cancelled for safety reasons. In the event of extremely cold weather (a wind chill hazard of -45°C or greater) buses will be cancelled and students will need alternate transportation.
Note: The wind chill is based on a reading taken by Environment Canada at 6:00 a.m. at The Forks.

The School Division will contact all parents via Synrevoice (automated phone messaging), to advise them of bus cancellations. The news media is also alerted to cancellations and Division websites are updated to reflect any announcements. Please find these announcements at the top of our home page. 

Media information is available on CJOB radio and web at, and at

Please ensure that the school is notified if your phone number changes so that we will be able to contact you.

Student Transportation in Public Vehicles
The Board defines any vehicle used to transport students, other than a Division owned or chartered bus, as a private vehicle or "non-owned vehicle".
Although school buses are utilized to transport students on school sponsored activities such as field trips, outdoor education projects or sports activities, occasionally private vehicles are used to transport students to and from such events. Read the complete policy information here.
