Bus Service Cancelled - Monday February 4, 2019

February 3 2019 - Due to the extreme cold warning in effect for the region and the coldest wake-up temperatures expected to be -40 to -45 with the wind chill, bus service has been cancelled for Monday February 4, 2019 for all buses in the Parkland School Division Regional Transportation system.

Remember that, except in very special circumstances, Parkland School Division schools always remain open on school days. The final decision to send a child to school rests with parents and guardians.

As outlined in Administrative Procedure 131, schools shall remain open with an understanding that no new concepts or learning projects shall be initiated during a cancellation of transportation services. Review and/or work on learning tasks, assignments or projects already in progress shall be encouraged.

Parents and guardians should ensure that students are dressed appropriately while travelling to and from school during inclement weather conditions. The temperatures can drop dramatically in the event of mechanical issues.

For the most up-to-date information, please visit our Bus Status page at www.psd70.ab.ca. You'll find the quick link featured prominently on the right hand side of our homepage.

As always, the final decision to have their child board the bus rests with parents.

We apologize for any inconvenience. At Parkland School Division, we are a caring and compassionate organization, guided by what’s in the best interest of our students, and their safety is our top priority.
