Now that we are feeling the winter weather, we would like to make sure all parents are aware of our Cold/Inclement Weather Procedures. These procedures are in affect for both rural and urban bus routes.
The Transportation Office has two methods of communicating delays or cancellations of our buses:
– CKBI and CJVR radio stations receive all notifications, these stations will announce a list of our buses that are delayed or not running.
– Notifications will be placed on our website, www.srsd119.ca . Scroll down on the home page to Transportation and you will find a “Bus Report” link. Click on the bus report to check for a list of bus cancellations.
We do not phone individual homes to report bus cancellations.
We ask that you do not call the Transportation Office as we will be very busy managing the routes and ensuring the safety of the children on the buses.
Dressed for the season:
Students must dress appropriately for the weather. They must be dressed adequately for a 1 kilometer walk in case of an emergency. Our bus drivers have the authority to warn/educate a student on a first offense, and refuse transportation on the second. Saskatchewan Rivers complete Board Policies, Administrative Procedures and Transportation Manual can be reviewed on our website www.srsd119.ca. -Thank You, Ryan Bruce, Manager of Transportation
