​School Bus Safety at the CBE

School bus loading zones provide a safe area for students to embark and disembark the buses. Please do not drive into the school bus loading zone when you pick up or drop off your child.

Help teach your child to safely cross the street around school buses. Children should:

  • Stand back a safe distance from the bus

  • Wait until the bus leaves the stop

  • Walk to the closest intersection

  • Cross the street only when they have a clear view of traffic in both directions and it is safe to do so

The CBE and school bus carriers want to ensure your child's safety and make their experience on the bus a positive one.​​

There are no classes for students on Friday Oct 11 because it is a system-wide non-instructional day. All schools and offices are closed on Monday Oct 14 for Thanksgiving. Have a fun and safe long weekend! #WeAreCBE https://t.co/bDHlmyqQn6

RT @UsihChristopher: Principals create conditions for student success and well-being. Supported by Education Directors, in our School Support Model, #WeAreCBE principals play a critical role in school improvement by working closely with staff, Ss, parents and community. #leaders

Students & staff at Captain Nichola Goddard School are doing the Green Commuting Challenge School. By changing their commuting habits they have not only reduced traffic but have become more active citizens and reduced their carbon footprint https://t.co/RgwQXOSFHr #WeAreCBE https://t.co/ynlovLjOQP

Due to the weather conditions, some sr. high athletics events may be cancelled this evening. All other activities, jr. high athletics and regularly scheduled events will run as normal, unless you are notified by your school. CBE buildings will remain open as scheduled. #yycbe
