​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.​​​​​​​​​​​​

Busing

End of Day/Busing

  • At the end of the school day, kindergarten and grade 1 students are handed off to a responsible adult unless the school is otherwise notified by parents.
  • All bussed students are expected to go to their bus after the dismissal bell at 2:34 PM (All busses depart at 2:44 PM).
  • If your child will not ride the bus on a particular day, you must notify the school in writing or by phone. If we have not received notification, and your child is not picked up on time, they will go on the bus as usual.
  • Information about late/cancelled busses can be found at www.myschoolbusmonitor.ca. Although we attempt to communicate with families regarding late busses we do not always have this information.
  • Repeated inappropriate or unsafe behaviour on the bus may lead to a student being suspended from taking the bus for a period of time. Please see the Calgary Board of Education’s Administrative Regulation regarding school bus rules and transportation: Administrative Regulation 6096 - Transportation Responsibilities and School Bus Rules
  • Students are only permitted to take their own bus at the end of the day (i.e. they cannot go on their friend’s bus to go to a play date).
