The new Brentwood bus code for MyBusStop is CBE3ELMZ90. Parents are reminded that only bussed children, whose parents have completed a Transportation agreement, may ride the bus. 

Absent / Busing Line

To report an absence or late call 403-777-6130 option 1. Leave your child’s name, room #, teacher’s name, reason and length of absence. Thank you for calling in such a timely fashion as this makes the accounting of absent / late children much quicker and therefore ensures the safety of our children.

If you have a busing question be sure to speak slowly and clearly, and leave a phone number so your call can be returned. The more information and the clearer the message, the easier it is for us to understand and respond. If you feel it would be helpful please repeat your message or spell your child’s name. 


As you are all aware, cold weather, icy roads and traffic all affect our bus service and sometimes delays are unavoidable.
Occasionally, a bus breaks down and it can be a considerable length of time before a replacement bus is sent. Please
keep in mind the following points:

  • For safety, caregivers should wait at bus stops until the children are on the bus. At the end of the day, caregivers
  • should be prepared to wait as busses may be delayed by heavy traffic or simply take longer to complete their routes on winter roads. When temperatures drop we certainly understand if families decide to drive students or keep them at home due to delayed busses. Please ensure that you are parking safely at bus stops.
  • Although we attempt to notify families if a bus has been very late leaving our school (usually more than 30 minutes
  • delayed), we do not have the staff to call if many busses are generally delayed due to poor weather or traffic.
  • In the winter, it is important for children to have warm clothing (hats, mitts, coats, scarves and boots) in case a bus breaks down.
  • The school does not usually have information about bus delays in advance. You may call Southland Transportation at 403-205-6688 if you need further information although this number is very busy and it is often difficult to get through.

Charter Busing Service

It is important that the parents of all students who access the charter bus service carefully review this information and all other information sent home about transportation. Despite the best efforts of all involved in transporting students to and from school, be aware that increasingly heavy and unpredictable city traffic and other factors often lead to difficulties in providing on-time service and in getting information out to parents as emergent issues occur.

Southland Transportation transports the TLC students attending Brentwood School. Parents of our CSSI students will be provided with information specific to busing for their children. If buses are late, please call the carriers for updated information or check www.myschoolbusmonitor.com for more information or Southland Transportation at: Southland Transportation McKnight Yard – 403-205-6688.

Be advised that pick-up and drop off times are approximate only. It is important to be at the bus stop 5 minutes prior to the designated time. You should expect to wait for the bus. Bus drivers are not able to wait at bus stops for late children.

If your child normally takes the bus and is being picked up on a particular day, you must include a note in their agenda. Otherwise, they will be boarded on their regular bus.

​​​​​​Getting Students to School

You can register your child for yellow school bus transportation online using your MyCBE or by completing a transportation registration form. Register every school year.

Please visit the CBE website to find more information on fees and service levels for the 2022-23 school year.​​

To be included in the yellow school bus route planning for September, parents must register by the June 8, 2022 deadline. The more registrations we receive by the deadline, the more efficient route planning will be for September. Transportation continues to accept registrations after the deadline, and students are added to the closest existing stop with space, within the distance guideline. Processing times could be up to 6 weeks at the beginning of the school year due to volume.

Yellow school bus registrations can be cancelled by Sept. 30 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 April​ 30 or for individual trip delays.

Bus Status

Parents/guardians can view the bus status online:

We are aware of the communication challenges the providers are having keeping route information up-to-date for families. At this time, all service provider staff are dedicated to driving buses and they are not always able to accommodate this service.​

​Visit CBE Transportation​ for forms and more information.

Conditional R​iders

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.

Alternate Addresses

We've heard from families that they would like more flexibility to access bus stops and routes to support childcare arrangements and changing family schedules. This year, CBE Transportation will allow families to add a second address to their transportation registration to have access to two bus stops and/or routes.

Note | All addresses must be within the attendance area for the school and outside the walk zone. Maps can be found on the school profile on the CBE website. The information collected from parents informs bus route planning, but does not guarantee a stop at the exact location requested.

To participate in the program, you must:

  • Pre-register for transportation in MyCBE by the June 8, 2022 deadline.
  • Fill in the Request for Alternate Address form in MyCBE and provide one additional address and schedule for your child. Note: the form will only appear after you register.

CBE Transportation will review each request to determine if the request can be accommodated. Families will be notified of the decision within six weeks of application. If it is approved, the second address will be used as we are creating new bus routes.

The cost of this request, if approved, is $110.​
