Busing and the Upcoming Cold Weather
With the cold weather expected to get even colder, we would like to share a few reminders about school bus transportation in inclement weather:
In-town buses have adopted the same inclement weather process as rural routes. When the temperature and/or wind chill is -40°C or colder, buses will be cancelled. Check out our infographic to learn more about how decisions are made regarding busing. https://bit.ly/2J4EpH3
In an effort to support student learning and better accommodate families, St. Paul Education may run afternoon buses during extreme cold weather under certain circumstances. https://bit.ly/2KAhrs0
If your child rides a Division bus, you can receive notifications regarding delays/cancellations by signing up for the ALERTUS App. An instructional document and video are available on our website: https://www.stpauleducation.ab.ca/transportation>Alertus App
Ensure your child is dressed for the weather with appropriate footwear and outerwear, including headgear and mittens or gloves.
