Bus Cancellation Procedures

SnowflakeWhile we’re hoping that the coming winter is a gentle one, we are always asked to prepare for those inclement whether days, poor road conditions, and the possibility of having bus cancellations.

“To ensure the safety of students, school bus service may be cancelled from time to time due to inclement weather, extreme temperatures and/or poor road conditions. In these cases, parents and students should develop alternate care/transportation arrangements.  Since some busing schedules begin by 7:00 a.m., cancellation decisions must be made by 6:00 a.m. to allow time to communicate this message to bus drivers. Cancellation decisions will only be made after thorough consultation with the Safety Officers of school bus companies servicing York Region and are based on several factors including precipitation, air temperature, road conditions and weather forecast.”

For additional information about bus cancellations, and how to learn of them in the event of inclement weather, please read the Bus Cancellation Notice Form.
