A BUS SAFETY MESSAGE
These frosty mornings remind us that snowy weather isn't far off, and so we want to take this time to send winter weather reminders for bus families. Although schools remain open during winter weather events, bus service may occasionally have to be cancelled for the day if road conditions are considered too dangerous due to snow or icy conditions. Announcements regarding bus delays or cancellations are made via local radio stations on the affected day. Diversified Transportation has a parent messaging service that can be subscribed to on their website: www.diversifiedbus.ca
Please ensure children are dressed for the weather; frostbite of exposed skin can occur in a very short time. Students are not expected to wait for a bus more than 15 minutes past the scheduled pick-up time. If the bus has not arrived by that time, they should return home or to a prearranged place of shelter. The decision to keep a student home for the day due to winter weather conditions shall be made by a parent/guardian.
