WHAT ARE MY OPTIONS?
The Nipissing-Parry Sound Student Transportation Service in partnership with the Near North District School Board provides families with the following resources and information to inform parents of their transportation options and eligibility when attending Near North Schools.
Inclement weather season is once again upon us. With our northern winters being very unpredictable, there will be days when cancelling the school bus becomes necessary. It is therefore important that parents have contingency plans in place in advance. You should monitor weather conditions as we do. The NPSSTS uses all weather resources we have at our disposal, including Environment Canada. Should you see a weather warning from Environment Canada in the evening, there is a strong likelihood that buses will be cancelled the following day.
When the decision is made to cancel buses, it is made with student safety in mind. The NPSSTS works closely with our experienced team of operators to make the best decision based on the information we have at hand.
Please remember that although school buses may be cancelled, schools remain open. All students are encouraged to attend school using alternate transportation where possible. You will also be responsible for transportation home at the end of the day.
Plan ahead and please visit http://en.npssts.ca/npssts/en/delays for details of bus cancellations and delays.
