During inclement weather please note the following:

The decision to cancel transportation is made by 6:15 a.m. in order to give all parents, bus drivers and schools sufficient notice. The decisions are based on a number of factors, including the actual weather and road conditions, as checked first-hand by designated Bus Operators in each area, weather predications made by Environment Canada, and information on road conditions from the local Road Superintendent.

BUS DELAYS AND CANCELLATIONS

We want to advise students and families that STWDSTS may encounter higher than normal rates of absence for school vehicle drivers. We know this can be challenging for families. Please remember to support your local school vehicle driver. If the driver is covering a late route and is not your regular driver, they have most likely already completed their regularly assigned route and are helping to make sure that your children can get to and from school safely.
