Different bus stop?

From Cathy Whalen

Parents or Guardians requesting permission for their children to take a bus somewhere other than their regular stop are required to provide the school with a note (or email, or a phone call in an emergency) that contains the following information: 

I will accommodate “registered” riders for this requested accommodation as long as we get the required information. The requests should come in with at least 24 hours notice.  The information above has to be included on the school bus note for the driver as well on the summary forwarded to maintenance@sd54.bc.ca. This information is required for student tracking in the unlikely event of an emergency.

If the required information is not received by the parent, “NO” to the request is a fair answer.  While we do provide transportation to and from school, we are not a taxi service.  Parents need not be directed to me unless the circumstances are warranted by an emergency.  

I will accommodate requests from families who do not have their children registered on the bus under special circumstances on a case by case bases.   All the above-mentioned information is required as well as emergency contact information   

Thank you very much.
