The Ontario Government has announced that Ontario Public Schools will remain closed to students until Monday, May 4, 2020, in response to the rapidly evolving COVID-19 outbreak.
All school bus transportation remains cancelled.
As these dates come closer, this decision will be re-evaluated based on public health advice. The closures may be extended if necessary to protect the health and safety of students, families and staff.
Please check your school board website for further information about school closures, and continue to visit www.nwobus.ca for updates about school bus service.
In Ontario, the fine for passing a school bus with it’s stop arm activated and flashing lights on is $400 to $2,000 and six demerit points for a first offence. Each following offence is $1,000 to $4,000, and six demerit points. More importantly, school buses carry our future. Please watch for students!
What to do in EXTREME COLD TEMPERATURES
When the actual temperature is –38° C or colder we may shut down the school bussing system. If this happens we will send an alert by email/text and post the cancellation on our website. Schools usually remain open. We do not factor in wind chill because if we did, your buses wouldn’t run for a good part of the winter months. For more information click here!
Please ensure your child is dressed appropriately for the weather when riding the bus.
