Any misbehaviour on school buses may result in loss of bus privileges. In addition, misbehaviour on the buses will result in disciplinary referral to Administration for appropriate consequences.

Bus cancellations

Buses may be cancelled due to weather conditions and will be announced on local radio stations and usually on their websites. Please do NOT call the school. When buses are cancelled, the school is generally OPEN and students should attempt to attend if it does not jeopardize safety. All classes will proceed as usual on these days.

The Student Transportation Services of Waterloo Region also maintains a Twitter feed where cancellations and delays are posted. Sign up on Twitter: @STSWR. Alternately, if you want to receive email updates of busing changes you can sign up for that service on their website.
