Student supplies are provided by the school for children in kindergarten through grade 6.  Families will be responsible to send their children to school daily with a backpack, water bottle, lunch and snack.  

Lunch Supervision 

For those families that choose to pay for their child to stay for lunch, our lunch room supervisors and teachers provide supervision over the lunch hour. There will be a Noon Supervision fee for students that stay, which can be paid online at MyCBE / PowerSchool. As well, an Incidental Activity fee will be charged that can be paid here at Abbeydale School.

Assigned Teachers 

Teachers will communicate with parents sometime between August 10 - August 12. Teachers will share information about your child's daily schedule, what door will be used for drop off and pick up, and information regarding what our child needs to bring to school each day.  

On August 15, please bring your child to their designated door.  If you are unsure of what door to bring your child to, please come to the front entrance for guidance.

​​​​Yellow School Bus Tra​nsportation

Yellow school bus routes for the 2022-23 school year are created o​ver the summer and based on the addresses submitted before the pre-registration deadline in June. Transportation continues to accept registrations after the deadline; however, students are added to the closest existing stop with available space. Processing times could be up to six weeks at the beginning of the school year due to volume.

More information about 2022-23 transportation service levels and proposed fees are posted on the CBE website.

Your bus stop location and time will be available in your MyCBE account by mid-August.

Conditional riders can also register using MyCBE. Applications will be considered after eligible riders registrations have been processed.

Learn more about transportation on the CBE website.

We look forward to a great year ahead. If you have any questions that we haven’t addressed here, please contact the school.
