Bus Driver Shortages
We would like to inform families of children who ride a bus that we may face disruptions in our transportation services as we move forward with the school year.
Multiple factors, including the COVID-19 pandemic, can contribute to a shortage of bus drivers. Note that this shortage is widespread, affecting school districts across Canada and the U.S.
Our transportation team is working closely with contractors and division drivers to minimize disruptions as much as possible, however in some circumstances it may not be possible to locate a substitute driver. This may result in routes being cancelled or delayed.
We encourage all families to sign up for the Alertus App to enable you to receive transportation notifications. For more information visit our website at https://www.stpauleducation.ab.ca/transportation
We thank our families for their patience and understanding. Anyone interested in training as a bus driver is invited to contact our office at 780-645-3323.
