Absent / Busing Line

To report an absence or late call 403-777-6130 option 1. Leave your child’s name, room #, teacher’s name, reason and length of absence. Thank you for calling in such a timely fashion as this makes the accounting of absent / late children much quicker and therefore ensures the safety of our children.

If you have a busing question be sure to speak slowly and clearly, and leave a phone number so your call can be returned. The more information and the clearer the message, the easier it is for us to understand and respond. If you feel it would be helpful please repeat your message or spell your child’s name. 

Charter Busing Service

It is important that the parents of all students who access the charter bus service carefully review this information and all other information sent home about transportation. Despite the best efforts of all involved in transporting students to and from school, be aware that increasingly heavy and unpredictable city traffic and other factors often lead to difficulties in providing on-time service and in getting information out to parents as emergent issues occur.

Southland Transportation transports the TLC students attending Brentwood School. Parents of our CSSI students will be provided with information specific to busing for their children. If buses are late, please call the carriers for updated information or check www.myschoolbusmonitor.com for more information or Southland Transportation at: Southland Transportation McKnight Yard – 403-205-6688.

Be advised that pick-up and drop off times are approximate only. It is important to be at the bus stop 5 minutes prior to the designated time. You should expect to wait for the bus. Bus drivers are not able to wait at bus stops for late children.

If your child normally takes the bus and is being picked up on a particular day, you must include a note in their agenda. Otherwise, they will be boarded on their regular bus.

​Getting Students to School

You can register your child for yellow school bus transportation online using your MyCBE/PowerSchool or completing a transportation registration form.

Please visit the CBE website to find more information on fees and service levels for the 2018-19 school year.​​

The transportation pre-registration period will begin on Tuesday, May 23 and close on Monday, June 11, 2018. To be included in the yellow school bus route planning for September, parents must pre-register by June 11. Any registrations received after that date will not be considered until route changes are done after Thanksgiving. The more registrations we receive by the deadline, the more efficient route planning will be for September.

Yellow school bus registrations can be cancelled by Oct. 31 with no financial penalty. Cancellation forms must be completed before a pro-rated refund can be considered. No refunds will be processed for service cancelled after Apr. 30, 2019 or for individual trip delays.

Parents/guardians whose children access yellow bus service can view the status of their bus using the MyBusStop App or on My School Bus Monitor.

Visit CBE Transportation​ for forms and more information.

Conditional Riders

Students who are not attending the designated school for their program, or who are not within the transportation service area, may be able to access existing service if there is a suitable stop on the existing bus route. Fees will not be waived for conditional riders.

Criteria for conditional riders:

  • Must access an existing stop

  • Must be room on the bus

  • Must pay the transportation fee

  • No additional bus routes will be implemented to accommodate conditional riders

  • Must wait for written approval from Transportation Services before starting to ride the bus

Conditional riders are not permitted to ride the bus until it is determined there is space on the bus and riders have been approved by Transportation Services.
