COVID 19 Update

During the current COVID-19 pandemic, the health and safety of our students remains our top priority.  

To guide September startup of our schools, the District is following health and safety guidelines set forth by Public Health via the BC Centre for Disease Control, Ministry of Education, and WorkSafeBC.  We are also required to realign our busing capacity to meet individual school start up plans, which in many cases include staggered start and end times for educational cohorts.  The net impact of these new requirements from the health guidelines and school start up plans have necessitated a significant change to our busing service delivery model which will be focused on eligible student riders who live outside of our walk limits.  The impact of this change for the 2020-2021 school year start up, is that we will only be providing seats to eligible riders which includes students in grades K-3 that live more than 4.0 kms from their catchment school and students in grades 4-12 that live more than 4.8 kms from their catchment school.  We will no longer be able to provide rides for fee paying courtesy riders. Transportation services will only be provided to students who are registered for transportation and have a school district issued bus pass. These students will be included on bus seating plans established by the Transportation Department.

As the school year progresses and we have had a chance to experience our busing capacity under the new COVID related reality we will reassess our ability to provide services to fee paying courtesy riders.


Sept. 2020-2021 bus registration is now closed.  

If you are an eligible rider and have not registered but wish to ride, please contact your school office.

Eligible riders must live more than 4 kms from their catchement school for grades K-3 and more than 4.8 kms from their catchment school for grades 4-12.
