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.

During time of inclement weather and bus cancellations:

  • Parents can check Bus Planner Web for bus cancellations and their school board website for school closures and procedures.
  • We offer a subscription service which will notify you via e-mail when your child’s bus has been cancelled or delayed.  Click HERE to subscribe!
