Until the passes have been issued, drivers will have a list of students who qualify to ride the bus and will be asking students to provide their names upon boarding.divider Transportation Assistance for Students with Special Needs:
In circumstances where special needs students live outside of the walk limits and in the opinion of the Director of Instruction, are unable to ride the school bus, a transportation assistance allowance may be paid to the parents.
Parents of special needs students requesting transportation assistance for their child must make an annual application to the Director of Instruction – Learning Services.
Student Conduct on School Buses:
Students must follow the Regulations for Conduct on School Buses as specified in Policy 806 Transportation of Students.
School Bus Safety Reminder:
Yellow flashing lights mean CAUTION, get ready to stop.
Red flashing lights mean STOP. 
Please do not pass the school bus in either direction when the red lights are flashing, as children could be running to get on or off the bus. Children’s lives depend on you stopping! If you witness anyone not abiding by these rules, please call the RCMP with a description of the vehicle and license plate number.
