Picking Up A Bused Student at the End of the Day

Parents must inform the office by 2:15 PM if their child is not taking the bus at the end of the school day. This procedure helps us account for all of the children, get all of the children on their way home without delay, and ensure your child’s safety. 

Busing Concerns

If you are concerned that your child’s bus is not keeping to the posted schedule and is arriving or dropping off unreasonably late please contact Southland Transportation at 403-253-9323. You will need to provide them with the name of your child’s bus route. Please be patient at the beginning of the school year as well as during bad weather days as the buses typically run later than scheduled. The bus drivers are an important part of our school environment and are doing their best for our children. Please treat them with kindness and respect.

​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 2019-20 school year.​​

The transportation pre-registration period will begin in the spring (to be announced). To be included in the yellow school bus route planning for September, parents must pre-register by the deadline. 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 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.
