Olympic Heights School Information

Students are bused by Southland Transportation Ltd. The majority of students at Olympic Heights School are bussed from a number of different communities.

If you have a concern with safety, discipline or any related matter regarding transportation to and from the school on the school bus or at the bus stop:
• First talk to the driver of the bus that your child rides.
• Telephone the school at 403-777-8370 and ask to speak with school administration.
• Talk to the Southland Transportation Ltd. 403-287-1335. 

Notify the school at 403-777-8370 / send a note, if your child will not be riding the bus home. 

From time to time, parents wish to pick their children up from school rather than having them ride home on the school bus. Please sign your child out if it is earlier than dismissal time or let the office know in order for us to let the bus supervisors know.

If a child is going to a friend’s house and must ride the bus or a different bus a note is required.  A note from the child’s friend must also be provided giving permission for the friend to come over.

​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.

Visit CBE Transportation for forms and more information.​​​​​​​​​​​
