Only students who are eligible for transportation may ride the school bus. For information on eligibility for school bus transportation please visit the EMSB website.
School bus safety for parents and students
- All students are expected to behave in a safe and appropriate manner at the bus stop and while on the bus. They are to remain seated at all times and talk quietly.
- Students are not permitted to change school buses, nor are parents allowed to take the bus with their child.
- If problems arise during the year, parents must inform the office. They are NOT to deal with the bus driver or other students directly.
What if I want to pick up my child after school?
- If parents wish to make alternative arrangements for their child to go home, they are asked to write a letter to that effect to be presented to the principal for approval and signature at the start of the day.
In the interest of safety and security, it is recommended that a responsible adult accompany their child/children to and from the designated bus stop. It is mandatory for Kindergarten and Grade 1 students be accompanied by an adult to and from the assigned stop.
Does my child need a bus pass?
Drivers are instructed that all students should have a bus pass to board the school bus. Any student not bearing a bus pass must be reported to school personnel.
