Update | Winter Weather Reminders

Feb. 01, 2019

 

Families are encouraged to ensure their children are prepared for the weather and are dressed appropriately. The safety and security of our students is of the utmost importance.

Please refer to information about busing and transportation in winter weather posted on our website.

  • Children should be well prepared for the weather and not left unattended at bus stops for any period of time, under any circumstances.
  • Families should ensure that they have back-up care arrangements if transportation is delayed. Children should have a warm place to stay before and after school (i.e. with a neighbour or a nearby relative).
  • Roads may be congested and slippery resulting in possible traffic and bus delays.
  • All CBE schools will remain open to provide a safe, warm and secure environment for attending students.

Parents / guardians whose children access yellow school bus service can view the status of their bus using the MyBusStop app.

Updates about Calgary Transit service can be found on their website https://www.calgarytransit.com or their Twitter account (@calgarytransit).

We respect parents/guardians right to make their own decisions about sending their children to school. If your child will not be attending classes please ensure you contact your school's attendance line to report the absence.
