    Information that you provide us with at the time of your child’s registration is the contact information that we have in our system. It is extremely important for us to ensure we have your most current and accurate contact details on file as this is what allows us to communicate with you efficiently on your child’s behalf.  If your child is on the bus and being picked up by daycare it is important we have this information in our system together with the contact information for the daycare.

    We encourage parents to communicate with teachers via email for common, school-related issues and inquiries.

You can find more information on the CBE school fees and waivers​ page.​​​​​​​

Parents who have not already done so, must create an account in MyCBE to:

  • Pay fees or apply for a waiver

  • Register for transportation and lunch supervision

​​​Yellow School Bus Tra​nsportation

Yellow school bus routes for the 2021-22 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 2021-22 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.

​Further Inform​ation

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