Bus transportation to and from school is made available for all students. All students are expected to ride the bus unless alternate arrangements have been made with the school. The bus policy is noted below with more detail in the Student and Family Handbook. All students are expected to carefully follow the policy.
Students must be outside waiting for the bus. If the bus arrives early at your stop it will wait until the scheduled time for that stop. If your child is not outside waiting for the bus, it will only wait 1-2 minutes past the scheduled pick-up time. Please be patient for the bus when the weather changes as it can delay the run. If arrangements have been made with the school, for those students who get dropped off or walk, please note that the school will not be open until 7:55 a.m.
During the school year there may be times when school bus transportation is cancelled due to inclement weather or poor driving conditions, but the school will remain open.
School bus transportation for all schools in the City of Winnipeg is cancelled when the wind chill reaches -45 C by 6:15 am, based on the Environment Canada readings at the Winnipeg Airport. The temperature readings can be found at the Environment Canada website (http://www.weatheroffice.gc.ca). Announcements will be made on local radio and television stations if buses are cancelled for Gonzaga.
