​​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.

Thank you to all our amazing @PLougheedCBE teachers and teachers everywhere around the globe for going above and beyond each and everyday to care for and guide students! #WorldTeachersDay2021 #teachersrock #thankyou

Yesterday our @PLougheedCBE community spent the day learning and reflecting in preparation for #NationalDayforTruthandReconciliation. Over 1000 ribbons with our personal actions and commitments are proudly displayed outside the school🧡 @Area4CBE #OrangeShirtDay

RT @DrJCarrington: Connection and kindness is what matters. The angst in our communities is palpable. While our world looks different and is ever changing, what remains constant is the need for relationship and connection. To simply be noticed.

RT @DashmeshC: Happy #LabourDay2021 to everyone! We honor the hard work of Laborers today. One of the core teachings of Sikhi is Kirat Karo - To earn an honest living by utilizing our God-given skills and hard work for the benefit and improvement of ourselves, our families, and the world.

A special day @PLougheedCBE. We are saying goodbye to our amazing principal Gord Choate. After 29 years of teaching thousands of students and staff in CBE how to be the best versions of themselves, he is retiring today. @yyCBEdu @Area4CBE #thunderstrong (1/2)

RT @UsihChristopher: “The resilience of our staff and students has been incredible. I am so grateful for the cooperation of not only students and staff but our families," said Christopher Usih, chief superintendent for the CBE.

Caring and compassion at Peter Lougheed
