JK - Grade 6
Please view and save the calendar


Your busing may change ……..


with your child becoming a year older or graduating to another school, with JKs and new children enrolling at your child’s school, changes to school bus routes may be made to accommodate these changes.


Your student’s eligibility for a school bus may have changed. 

Please familiarize yourself with the policy below for home to school bus eligibility.


School Bus Eligibility Distances


JK/SK                       greater than               400 metres from school

Grade 1-3                 greater than               800 metres from school

Grade 4-12               greater than             1600 metres from school


Transportation will be provided for students that have a pick up or drop off address within their school zone and that the address is beyond the eligibility distance as shown in the above chart.  If you live closer than the eligibility for busing, your student may be considered a “walker” and may no longer be listed on a school bus route.


Students are also required to walk to and from regular school bus stops based on their grade.  Please be familiar with the ‘walk to stop’ practice, as your student’s walk distance requirement may have changed.


Walk to Stop Distance


JK/SK                        160 Metres

Grade 1-3                 400 Metres

Grade 4-12               800 Metres


Stops are adjusted on routes each year to accommodate younger students and for route efficiencies.
