School busses

We recognize that there are transportation issues with late busses and with some not arriving to pick up your children. There are many adjustments that occur at the beginning of the school year. We apologize and are working to improve this. If your child’s bus is consistently late or not arriving, please contact Southland Transportation directly at 403-205-6688 or the Calgary Board of Education Transportation Department at 403-817-7433.

For those inquiring about bus stop/pick up changes, a form is available from the school office.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
