Welcome to Sam Livingston School

Through caring, trusting and supportive relationships we will work together to ensure a climate for growth and learning. Students are at the centre of everything we do. Open communication between students, teachers and parents is essential for a successful year | read more


Bienvenue - Welcome Back

Our staff hope you have all had a tremendous summer vacation and we are looking forward to welcoming all the students back to school on Tuesday, September 1st. Please note that Monday, August 31st is a NON-STUDENT DAY.


Kindergarten students will be attending either Tuesday, September 1st or Wednesday, September 2nd for staggered entry. If you are uncertain about which day your child attends and the times for staggered entry please contact the office. Kindergarten busing will begin on Thursday, September 3rd.


The most significant change for our students and parents is the implementation of congregated stops for our buses. It is critically important you review the new bus maps for this year's busing to our school. We will have 8 buses rather than 9 and congregated stops mean there are fewer stops in each community for you to access. We have posted the new bus maps or you can drop into the school on Monday to pick up the new route maps. Additional information from the CBE can be found on the Busing & Transportation pages on the corporate website.


Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns regarding the school start up.


Detailed information regarding our learning plan and much more is in the Principalís Message, August 2015.


You may also like to read the Welcome Back message from our Board of Trustees | Sept. 2015.


Bus Maps

The new maps are now in our transportation section in Sam Livingston Bus Maps.


Please be at the bus stop 5 minutes before the written time as they are leave times. Do not park at the bus stop, allow enough space for the bus to safely access the stop.


Our transportation provider is Southland Transportation Ltd. To find out if your school bus is late, please check


Bus stop locations | All stops are congregated and the routes were designed based on the registrations received by June 25th. If you have a concern about a Kindergarten student or the safety of a particular bus stop, please contact the school. Distance related concerns will not be considered.


The CBE  transportation department can be reached at t | 403-817-7433 x 7 or at
