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.
