Winter Weather Safety Reminders

Winter conditions are in effect and parents and guardians are strongly cautioned to take extra care with students travelling to and from school. Please keep the following in mind to ensure the health and safety of all:
  • All younger students should be well prepared for winter weather conditions and should not be left unattended at bus stops. Parents should form an emergency plan with their children so they have clear instructions about what to do if the bus does not arrive.
  • Heavy snowfall can result in bus schedules being unavoidably delayed. Buses will run as close to schedule as possible. Transit delays do occur and should be expected.
  • Children should be dressed appropriately for the winter weather. Longer transit times and unexpected mechanical problems causing buses to cool off very quickly may occur more frequently at this time of year.
  • If parents and guardians cannot ensure the safety of their children to and from school, the child should be kept at home or other arrangements made for the daily supervision of the child.
  • Parents and guardians are advised to listen to local media for updates on weather, transportation and school closures.
