Every day, more than 119,000 CBE students get to school. They do so in a variety ways, including walking, taking yellow buses or Calgary Transit or being driven by parents/guardians. Their safety is important, no matter how they get to school and home again. This section will give you information on ways our students might arrive at school and how to ensure their safety throughout the journey.

​Getting to School by Bus at the CBE

About 37,000 students are transported to Calgary Board of Education schools every day by yellow buses, Calgary Transit, taxi and/or Handi-bus. The reasons students require transportation are varied. In some cases, it is because funding for new schools has not kept pace with the growth of new communities, resulting in students needing to travel to schools out of their neighbourhoods. In other cases, families choose to send their children to alternative programs that may not be located in their neighbourhoods. Other students have special learning needs are best met in unique settings.​​

Before and After School Care

The Hillhurst Sunnyside Daycare adjacent to the school offers before and after school care to many of our students as well. To learn more about this before and after and school program visit their website.
