As you are aware, the safety of your
children, our students, is of the utmost importance to us and this includes
safe transportation to and from school.The amount of requests schools receive to place students on different
school busses is a great concern. This becomes difficult for administration to
monitor as large numbers of alternate bus passes are being issued. Young
students are often unsure where they are supposed to go and many may be
unfamiliar to bus drivers.
You have already provided the school
with one alternate bus stop and we are able to accommodate this. School administration
has been directed to issue additional alternate bus passes for emergency
purposes only. On the rare occasion that this may arise, please make
contact with the school by telephone. It is important to speak to someone and
not to leave a voice message in case it is not picked up prior to departure.
I would like to thank you for your
co-operation as we continue to provide safe transportation for your children.
to parents: Please make sure when you pack your child's lunch that all items
are healthy choice items. Please do not send pop, chips, bars, etc as they are
against the District Nutrition Policy.
