As we plan for a return to in-person learning in September we remind families that you can contact us throughout the summer to make your transportation arrangements for next year.

Students who rode the bus regularly before schools moved to remote learning at the end of the April break will be automatically registered for bussing next year, with the following exceptions:

  • Students whose distance eligibility has changed (e.g. grade level or school change). Parents/Guardians of students who are no longer eligible for bussing will be contacted by email;
  • Returning Grade 12 students (all returning Grade 12’s must re-register for bussing).

If you did not ride the bus this year and would like to request bussing for next year, please go to www.nwobus.ca/transportation-request-form or call us at 1-866-860-7770 or 807-223-1256.

All Parents/Guardians are reminded to check your child’s transportation arrangements before the start of next school year, as your bus number or stop times may have changed. You can check your arrangements beginning in mid-August using our Parent Portal www.nwobus.ca/parent-portal.  If you haven’t already done so, you will need to sign up for the Parent Portal using your child’s Ontario Education Number (OEN) which can be found on their report card. Alert subscribers will be notified by email and text message alert when the Parent Portal is available.

If your child is a bus student but you do not plan to ride the bus at the beginning of the school year, please let us know. You can do this by emailing us at bussing@nwobus.ca . If you opt out now you may register your child for bussing at a later date.
