​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 2020-21 school year.​​

To be included in the yellow school bus route planning for September, parents must register by the June 14 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 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 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.​​​​​​​​​​​​

Need Temporary Transportation if the Opening of our Permanent Northern Lights School Building is Delayed?

If you require temporary transportation to Coventry Hills School if the permanent Northern Lights School location does not open for September 1, 2020, families can register for temporary transportation through their Parent PowerSchool account.  The fees will be determined based on the distance from your house to the host school (Coventry Hills School).  If you live less than 2.4 km, then the fee will be $80/month.  If you live more than 2.4 km away, then the fee will be $46.50/month.  All fees will be re-assessed once the new school opens.
