To Parent/Guardian(s) of Bus Students

We would again like to thank you for your patience while we work with First Student to implement this new transportation system and provide you with an update.

A driver shortage is being experienced across Canada in many transportation industries and we have not avoided feeling the impact with our student transportation. This shortage has resulted in the necessity to combine some routes in order to transport as many students as possible and that run times may be longer than in the past. 

The current route combinations were made quickly by First Student to respond to a sudden reduction in their driver complement.  The District will be reviewing routes for efficiencies and requesting adjustments as appropriate.

Unfortunately, there are still a number of routes which do not have scheduled drivers and First Student is working to fill those positions. 

As additional new drivers are available First Student and the District will be working to adjust the length of combined routes to reduce some current ride times for students.

In light of these anticipated changes, moving forward all route changes will be communicated to families via email and routes will continue to be shared on school websites.

Families are encouraged to check their school websites for the most current route information.

What is Happening at the School District on October 3rd?

September 22, 2022

thumbnail_Lhulh’uts’ut’en Logo Centre Text small.png

Non Instructional Days are opportunities for us to learn as a teaching community, to review practices and procedures, and to work to become better leaders in our school communities. On October 3rd School District No. 57 is holding a Lhulh'uts'u'ten Day (Indigenous Day of Learning) for our staff. The Lhulh'uts'u'ten Day is a special opportunity for us to remember that we are changemakers and that we can motivate our students to be the changemakers of their future. Staff will spend the day gathering knowledge and learning important skills they will bring back to their classrooms. Some of the activities on this day will include a session with Monique Gray Smith, drum making workshops, meetings with Indigenous Elders, learning the history of our local indigenous groups, and finding new and interesting ways to bring this knowledge back to our students. Education can lead to a better future, and this is one of the things we can do to get there.
