Bus Cancellations

Bus Cancellation Days
Posted on 11/16/2023

The cold, snowy days are fast approaching.  Thank you in advance for dressing your child appropriately.  In the event of inclement weather, Rock 95, Kool FM (107.5) or Big FM (101.1) will announce the bus/school cancellations on the radio. Please do not call the school for cancellation information.  The following are the procedures for safe arrival on “snow days”:

  1. If buses are cancelled and your child takes the bus, you do not need to call the school.
  2. If buses are cancelled and your child walks to school, it is at the discretion of the parent whether it is safe for your child to walk.  If your child is a walker and is not going to attend school, it is the responsibility of the parent to call the school and report the absence.  The safe arrival program is still in effect on snow days and it is crucial that you report your child absent if he/she is a walker.

  3. If buses are cancelled in the morning, that means that they are cancelled in the afternoon as well.  Please do not drive your child to school and expect him/her to be returning home on the bus.

  4. The phone lines are extremely busy on snow days.  Please leave a message on voice mail, or continue trying if the lines are busy.  Thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation.

  5. Please be aware that in the event of bus cancellations on a Hot Lunch day, the lunch program will be cancelled for that day.  If your child is attending school you will need to provide a lunch for that day.

  6. On bus cancellation days, kindergarten students will be dismissed at the end of the day at the kindergarten gateAll other children will be dismissed through the west doors (where the garbage and recycling shed is located).
