Accommodating Bus Changes

We recognize with the Spring weather, students may need to alter their afterschool plans (baseball practice, swimming, karate to name a few). Bus Transportation Services continues to require a note that will be passed on to your driver (or when there is substitute driver) if your child is getting off at a stop that differs from their normal scheduled stop, otherwise your child will not be permitted to get off the bus.

Please continue to be as clear with your child about afterschool plans. If your child's Teacher uses a planner, write it in the student planner or give them a note so that they don't worry at the end of the day. 

Kindergarten and Grade 1 Riders:  

Kindergarten and Grade 1 students cannot disembark from the bus without a parent being present at the stop.  The Driver cannot hold up the schedule and must continue on (as they must be on time for the other school runs that begins after Fernwood's). Your child stays on the bus safe with the Driver and is escorted to the Bus Depot. Your child will be at the SD64 Maintenance Building at 160 Rainbow Road (250-537-5723)  for you to pick them up. The approximate route end times for both buses is 4:20 pm.
